I have setup a Adobe Update Server and it is working fine. Problem is the drive I have setup for the updates is getting full. It is automatically downloading updates for CS5 and newer. I don't have any computers pointing to this server that is running CS5 and CS6, only CC. I have already tried deleting the old updates but they just get downloaded again. How can I block CS5 and CS6 updates from getting downloads, they are just wasting space on my server?

Yes, you can now use --cleanup command to remove old versions. This feature came in the most recent AUSST release.Use the Adobe Update Server Setup Tool (AUSST)Remove obsolete products that are not requiredDownloads of all products except for those specified in filter are removed.AdobeUpdateServerSetupTool.exe --root="<root folder>" --incremental --cleanup --filterProducts="<sap codes you want to retain after cleanup>"

I don't think this is possible. The system requirements for AUSSt are 100 gb of disk space.

Could some sort of filtering feature be added to AUSST? It is very wasteful to download many GB of updates for old versions that we no longer have, and even more so to download all the MacOS updates that we don't use at all.

The problem with this is that Acrobat DC does not have a SAP code and therefore when you add SAP codes, Acrobat DC is not avaulable within CC.

 

Any advice for this?
