    Our WSUS 3.0 server is getting loaded up with a bunch of drivers and old
    updates that we don't need anymore. We've deselected the option to download
    drivers but we're still stuck with all the ones we've already grabbed. I do
    believe there's some command line utility that might be able to accomplish
    this task but I'm not sure what that would be, nor the syntax. If anyone
    knows any good KB articles or some quick advice about this, I'd greatly
    appreciate it. Thanks!

  2. Decline them, run the Server Cleanup Wizard.

    Lawrence, I've been thinking about doing this too.
    If I were to 'decline and cleanup' a bunch of drivers, will it synch them
    again later by turning "drivers" back on?
