WSUS – Move location of WSUS Store

Ever looked at WSUS Server and found out you were running out of space, or, for some reason had to move the WSUS updates to another drive?

Well, here’s how you can do it:

First you need to be a member of the local admin group for that server, and create the new WSUS content folder on the new destination.

Then, open a command line and type:

wsusutil.exe movecontent DestinationDrive:”New WSUS Content Folder” DestinationDrive:”CreateLogFile.log”

(The wsusutil.exe tool is usually located in WSUSInstallationDrive:Program FilesMicrosoft Windows Server Update ServicesTools)

If you don’t want to copy the Content Folder files just add the -skipcopy optional parameter.
