Hi

In order to make more space on c: you have following options

Delete unwanted profiles form docs and settings
move page file from c: to other local drive
delete unwanted folders other than Windows/winnt
enable disk compress

To move page file right click on my computer and select properties
In properties select advance tab
In advance tab under performance select settings
performance option window will open
select advance tab in it
under virtual memory select change
In virtual memory windows select c: and note down page file size
page file size will be available under page file size for selected drive
make this as 0 in both tabs
then select e: and set values noted by you
close all windows by select ok and re-boot the server

It will not. Recommended is to perform compress activity in non business hrs. so that it will not impact users in terms of performance as while doing compress activity disk IO will increase.
before doing this check following two points to get imed. disk space if required.
- delete unwanted folders other than Windows/winnt
- Delete unwanted profiles form docs and settings

$ntuninsta..... is all uninstall information which is required to uninstall applications, patchs, service packs etc. . If you remove it you will be in problem. Just aviod Windows and winnt folders and its files. other than these folders you can delete others if not required.

Check the WINNT\softwaredistribution\download folder. This holds windows updates which are sometimes not deleted when they are installed. You can safely delete all the contents of this folder.
Also WINNT\temp
Also WINNT\system32\logfiles
You can also move the $NyUninstall folders to your E:\ drive. if you need to uninstall a service pack or update you will need to move te required one back to the WINNT folder.
Check C:\documents and settings for uneeded data in profiles
I personally would not compress the entire C: drive. I would compress c:\WINNT\servicepack files
