Running out of space on C drive

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I have a windows 2003 server which is the DC,  partitionned as follow:

c: 12.59GB        1.07GB Free
E: 133.07GB      2.89GB Free (data)
F: 160GB          150.48GB Free

I have another windows 2003 for exchange 2003 partitioned as follow:

c: 20.97GB           3.94GB Free
E: 136.32GB         15.77GB Free (database)
F: 61.21GB           50.02GB Free

We need to find a solution for the C drive as it's  almost running out of space.

I wonder what is the best solution for having more space on the C. I was thinking about taking a image of the C and buy another drive and restore the image to that drive? or resizing the C and F together to get more space is that possible? if yes is that going to crash my system?
Please advice for a proper solution to this problem.
