Moving WSUS Content Store

The content of WSUS is growing exponentially and the storage is nearly full. To move the existing content to a bigger LUN, Wsusutil.exe is the program. To execute the move, prepare the new destination folder and use this command:
Wsusutil.exe movecontent {new location} {log file}  [-skipcopy]

Use the -skipcopy option, if you do not wish to copy existing content over. For example, if the new location is at D:\content, the command should be:
Wsusutil.exe movecontent D:\Content D:\move.log

For Windows Server 2008, the location of Wsusutil should be at "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Server Update Services\Tools". For Windows Server 2012, you should be able to find the executable at "C:\Program Files\Update Services\Tools".
