    WSUS

    Hi,

    I have tried searching but found no posts with people's WSUS configuration. What do you guys think is a sensible amount of disk space to set aside for WSUS?

    It will only manage Windows XP , 7 and Office updates.

    Thanks in advance.

    Well our WSUS server is set as a downlink server of our ISP so we get what they provide. Currently our storage is 132Gb but that is with most options switched on

    Here's a guide I wrote how to setup WSUS. As for the options you wish to select, I'd set aside 30GB of space (as a guess).

    If you're running 2008 R2, you can more easily expand or shrink volumes 'on the fly' which is extremely useful.
