  • How to Migrate WSUS repository directory into different drive ?

    Hi All,

    I've got WSUS 3.0 SP2 installed in my Windows Server 2003, in the partition that i created, i can see that it has no more disk space left so how do i move the 25 GB+ WSUS directory into separate or new drive safely without breaking the WSUS process in my company ?

    Code:
    Directory: B:\WSUS
    Mode                LastWriteTime     Length Name                                                                                                                                          
    ----                -------------     ------ ----

      Yes, Wsusutil.exe can help you.
      Create the directory on the new partition first and then use the utility with the following example syntax:

      Code:
       
      wsusutil movecontent D:\WSUSNEW\ D:\move.log
