Running Disk Space

I have a Dell server that is running out of disk space.  There are two partitions,

C: Drive  12 GB with  2 GB's of free space
D: Drive - 192 GB with 148 GB of free space.

I would like to know is there a way to make adjustments to the partition sizes without losing data.  I would like to increase the C: Drive by 30 GB and Reduce the D: Drive by 30 GB.

I have the updates for the server on hold right now because of the lack of space on the C: Drive.  I cannot fix my SQL 2000 msdb until I can run the required updates (from what I have read).

I had to free up some space on the C: Drive because I had some errors caused by this issue.  The SQL msdb database has been marked (Suspect) and I suspect this is part of the cause.  The other databases seem to be working but not necessarily correctly.

There is absolutely no need to change anything in the sizes of partitions. Just follow leew's instructions (one of EE's most distinguished experts) to move unnecessary junk off C:.
