10GB is not very much for a Server partition, but it must have been working OK until now.

Have you completely cleaned out all Temporary files of all kinds?
Are there any applications loaded on the C drive that you can install on one of the other partitions.

Clean up all you can and move anything you can.

I have not had luck 're-sizing' server partitions in the past, but you may have better luck.

Back up anything critical before trying it.

I disagree - 10 GB is more than enough unless this is a terminal server.  The question is what are you storing on the C: drive that doesn't belong.
