How to Clear Space on WSUS Server

by | Last updated 2023.07.25 | Published on 2019.09.11 | Blog

If your WSUS server is consuming too much space — it can be a symptom of slowdowns, errors and countless other problems. System administrators can waste a lot of time trying to clear space and often their efforts would be better spent elsewhere.

WAM is automated WSUS maintenance that can easily clear space on your server. Our software is so simple to use, that once it’s installed it will automatically maintain your server. All you have to do is wait for an emailed daily report.  

WAM helps clear space on your WSUS server by:

  • Shrinking your WSUS Content folder and declining superseded updates
  • Cleaning out the synchronization logs
  • Removing drivers from the WSUS database
  • Removing declined updates 
  • Running the server cleanup wizard
  • Running the recommended maintenance script on the SQL database

The software is so effective, that we keep a record on our site for removals over 300GB. Currently, our first place position is sitting at 1636.88GB:

Review from a Satisfied Customer:

“Just wanted to drop a quick note to say what a great tool WAM is. My WSUS drive was growing and growing, and I kept throwing disk space at it and was up to almost 700GB. Nothing I tried would reduce the size and the built-in cleanup wizard always failed. Came across your tool, and thought for $60 its worth a try and bang! >500GB recovered!”
