Implement complete removal of unsused products in WSUS 3.x
Please implement an ability to really get rid off unused products in WSUS 3.x
A company once used XP and 7 and now upgraded to Windows 10. However it is not possible to really purge old products from the WSUS database.
The Update files can be removed using the cleanup wizard, but the entries in the MSSQL DB will remain.
Especially if one has once used the older drivers category that has been reorganized for Windows 10, this causes a lot of performance issues and only a fresh WSUS without adding old products and categories will help.
This is too cumbersome.

This would be quite useful.

one more example. If a company has migrated to .net 4.6.2 or even 4.7 all old .net 4.x patches won't be cleaned up even though the component should be a replacement for 4.0, 4.5, 4.6, 4.6.1
