I have never found a program that will repartition a server RAID HD....nor would I ever try it under most circumstances.  Sounds dangerous  :)  I would recommend moving exchange store, data, user shares, etc if possible first.  Are you able to move data to another drive?  What other specs can you tell about your server?

Some raid utils allow you to expand and add drives. Need more information on the hardware. Software check out Acronis for servers.

I have a Dell Power Edge T100. I already have the shared folders and user folders on the D drive but i'm still extremely low on space on the C: drive I have between 1.5GB to 244MB free it varies all the time. I am currently not using any RAID and the Hard drive is a basic disk not Dynamic.

Acronis for servers would be the best bet.  It is awesome on desktops.  It is a bummer that you have to buy it just to use it once though :)  Let me guess, Dell sent the server out with a 12 GB partition from the factory?  We always had to repartition and reload those servers before we put them in production.  Especially if you are using SBS which stores everything on the C: drive.

Your right about Dell. They sent out the server with a 25GB and most of it was already used.

I want to thank you for your help. I resolve the problem but i had to go to my last option. I cloned the harddrive and wiped out the D drive, than i simply used easus partition manager to extend my C drive. I then had to create the D partition again and copy all of the files back.
