I cannot log into my sonicwall so I will add files after I reach the Server onsite

I would certainly try to uncompress it.  Though first you might want to go through my page on Boot Drive Size.

I would also suggest when you uncompress, stop all exchange services so that all exchange files will uncompress.

I agree with leew, definitely do not compress the system drive.
If you need more room on the system drive, Leew has some great pointers on his site, and with SBS you can also move many of the default folders, as per the following document:

It is also possible to move the Exchange database files if necessary. Before making any changes, even the un-compression, I strongly recommend a full back up, and especially if moving the Exchange databases:

So you don't feel a split of the points was deserved?  My information was completely useless to you?

bilobat99, I would have to agree, that leew's suggestions and site, even if you did not use, was a useful alternative and should result in a point split.
