Removing Expired Updates

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I had to remove the SUP and WSUS from a standalone SCCM 2012 R2 (v1610) server.  After the reinstall of the WSUS (using SQL) and the SUP I went back in to recreate the Groups and Packages, but noticed that nearly all the updates were expired.  After MANY hours of research and learning that the expired updates will be removed after 7 days, I have to ask, if there is a quicker way to removed the expired updates?  The reason I ask is that although some of the updates say they are expired on the server, I still need the updates to fix vulnerabilities.  When I click to download the update I receive "All software updates in the selection are expired or meta-data only, and cannot be downloaded."

Thank you in advance for any help anyone can assist with.
