Hi @ShaunWallis

You can expand the existing raid 5.

If your WSUS is getting big, look at Clean-WSUS.ps1. I bet it cleans up a TON of space. Seen it clear up 100GB of expired/unneeded updates and it will do it automatically if you set it as a task. Few pieces to install (SQL connections) and then very easy to configure. It's something I install with every machine running WSUS.
