Allow the scheduling of the Modify Updates Wizard for Update Cleanup (unreferencedpackagefolders)

Your Publishing Tool has a very useful feature to delete declined updates and then delete the unreferenced WSUS folders. It would be even more helpful if this maintenance could be configured on a schedule in order to help keep the underlying source clean and minimize diskspace usage.

    We are going to start looking into this feature this month.

    For more context, this would be to basically automate this process https://patchmypc.com/clean-up-third-party-updates-from-the-wsus-updateservicespackages-folder

    I think we will spend some time on this one sometime within the next few months. The one thing is updates will still need to be deleted from WSUS before the binary will be deleted on disk.

    Can't wait for this one. Running BDam's WSUS Maint. Script, MSEndpointMgr's Clean Software Update Packages in ConfigMgr with PowerShell, and this would turn WSUS/SUP into a set-it-and-forget-it setup.

    Marking it as planned. We don't have an ETA yet, but this is a feature we will likely add.

    This would be a nice feature to have via an automated method. Marking as noted.
