Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

True if unneeded revisions should be deleted. False if no action is currently necessary.


When running on MSDE, the WSUS database can grow beyond the 2-gigabyte limitation of that database. To ensure that WSUS continues to work, it will notify you when the database grows too large by setting this flag. When this flag is set, you should use the WsusUtil tool to delete unneeded revisions from the WSUS database.
