    Hi Niv,

    it is not recommanded to manualy delete updates from the WSUS server.
    the update you are talking about is an operating system update and not a WSUS update and there for if you delete it you won't be able to uninstall it in the future if you want.

    if you want to free disk space, the only "good" way doing that is uninstalling and reinstalling the WSUS itself and before sync with microsoft setting up to download only required updates.

      A few tips on WSUS disk management:

      Enable the option in WSUS to download only the updates that are approved as opposed to all updates whether approved or disapproved.

      Also, only download updates for your language or the language applicable to the machines that will be receiving the updates.

        What's wrong with installing a larger HDD?
