I can tell you how to do it right now.  Burn the contents of the 'content' folder onto a CD, and delete it from your HD.
Run uqm with the '-n' flag.

IE: uqm.exe -n X:\
(where X is your drive letter.)

(PS: This is all in thoery, but it should work fine, don't blame me if you waste a CD)

(PPS: There is an easier way, just burn the whole UQM dir on to a cd, and it should work.)
