31 Gig for OS is plenty. See the link below for how to manage boot drive on server:

You could look into converting the disks into "dynamic disks" and then spanning the volume

If you made changes using acronis, yes you must comit the changes.  Otherwise the changes won't take place.  And you may need to reboot as well.

Punky, his C: 32gb partition is full.  0% free...he's trying to give himself more space.

Anyway ya 250gb for log files?!  you probably dont need that much space....but....just a thought....
take 50gb or maybe even 100gb from there and move it toC: if you plan to implement more updates and install more programs on the C:.  Unless you plan to Install programs and not implement too many more updates.  Then you dont need much more space.

I have no server that has boot partition more than 15 G. Thank to Leew for the article of how to manage boot drive in server. Moving stuffs off C would be nice, easy and well organize.
