with exchange you need to restore the information to the same physical drive letter the db existed on before.  So that probably won't work.  A few questions:

Are you utilizing GRT?  What kind of enviornment are you working in (test/production)?
When you say you don't have enough room on your C drive I assume you mean on your backup servers C drive.  If your temp folder for the restore job is set to the default of C and there isn't room, then you won't be able to restore your exchange server.  My recommendation to resolve this issue it to add another drive to your backup server.  That can be a SAN drive or a USB drive, but it needs to appear local to the backup server.

So for example take a 500GB USB drive and connect it to your backup server.  Now you have a G drive.  Go into the properties of your restore job, then find the MS Exchange config under the Settings section of the restore job.  Change the temp directory from C to G on the Path for exchange temp storage.

Then you can restore you exchange DB.  It will take some time but it should work.  If you have issues or additional questions let me know.
