Hello
  I have a Dell Poweredge T610 with a Perc 6i Raid array. It was configured as a single RAID 5 array. It was split into an 80 gb boot drive and a 1.4 tb data drive. The problem is the boot drive is almost full.This is running SBS 2008 x64. I could add another drive into the array but I am not surehow I would get more space for the C drive

You have two options:

1. Purchase a partitioning utility that can move/resize partitions while keeping data intact.

2. Backup and delete your data partition, then use Windows built-in Disk Management utility to Extend C: to the desired size, recreate your data partition and restore data to it.

You may not have to add space if properly managed. Have you looked at all options to move shared user folders, Exchange, WSUS, and more, as well as clean out log files from hidden folders?

Adding additional drive will expand your disk space means you can add another partion or you have to resize the current partition using partition utility or extend disk size.
