I was just at a customer site which was complaining of slow response from the server, this would occur everytime anyone attempted to get to a file within the shared drive of the server.

The client has a physical raid disks, that has a 12 gig partition for OS and the rest partioned for data.  I'm considering resizing the OS partition on their server, the total space was about 200 Gbs.  It seems as though all the programs were being installed onto the C: drive (on the OS side).  The total amount that is free is about 128 Gb's left over.  

My questions is if anyone can suggest a solution for this?  As mentioned earlier, I'm considering resizing the drive, but like to hear what everyone has to offer and also what software, if any, was used to accomplish this solution, without corrupting the data?
In addition,  there are about 15-20 users and two shared drives.  They currently do not have a decent AV solution at the moment.  Only some of the workstations are running standalone Symantec clients for AV.
