WSUS Configuration: Don't save updates locally - Question
I have a WSUS server with disk space problems.

It is saving locally the updates, but I've changed the configuration in
order to not save locally the updates, telling my clients to download
from Microsoft Update.

I've noticed that WSUS doesn't delete the files saved in the disk
(folder Wsuscontent)... ¿can I delete the content of folder Wsuscontent
or can I make some trouble?

I think the info needed from WSUS to work must be only in SQL Server
from now, and the files that remain in folders can be deleted, doesn't it?

Thanks

Why do you think SQL Server is involved?

BTW forwarding this to a more relevant newsgroup.

You can, although my recommendation would be to use the Server Cleanup
Wizard.

Also, before you go zapping content, you'll want to confirm there are no
client systems that still have pending downloads from the WSUS Server.
