Hi chaps.

I have some supports in the shed that I've removed that are rotten. However some others are just wet.

Is there some treatment I can use to help force the water out and prevent them from rotting without me needing to fully remove them?

you need to remove the cause off the damp
is it from the side build up off leaves earth against the wall that you can remove??
is it from the ground underneath ??

is it caused by rain off the roof not being channeled away by gutters??

once you remove the case it will dry out naturally

As Bigall says you must first remove the source of the damp.
Wet rot cannot survive once damp is gone, then use a standard preservative when timber is dry.
Timbers should never sit directly onto ground if possible. Support them on brick or slabs, preferably on a strip of dpc.
