Move WSUS content to another drive/partition

Posted by bartvdw on 0707/0303/2010

This is, for WSUS 3.0, a very easy job to do! Actually they have a built-in tool. So if you have installed WSUS and discover your partition is filling up, you can easily move the content to another partition using the ‘wsusutil.exe’ utility. You can find this utility typically in ‘C:\Program Files\Update Services\Tools\’.

Command: wsusutil.exe movecontent %content path% %logfile% –skipcopy

%content path% : The new root for content files. The path must exist.
%logfile% : Path and filename of the log file to create.
-skipcopy : Indicates that only the server configuration should be changed and that the content files should not be copied.
