SBS 2008 needs more hd space on C

I have a 500gb RAID 5  where C partition is 235gb and E partition is 230gb. Is there a simple, bullet proof way to shink E and grow C?  I need about 50GB more on C and E has plenty to give up.

that is a really interesting article...I sent it to my IT guy, I am too chicken to tinker that level myself, but sounds promising

:) - Fair enough.

It is mostly straight forward.  The blog article I wrote is a little more involved but on the server I looked at, which had a 74Gb drive, it freed up 24Gb by changing the Sharepoint Reporting SQL Database!

I would imagine after tidying up that you will have your 50Gb free space back happily, if not more.

235gb on C: and you want more? :) Normally 50GB-70GB considered to be ok for system partition. Do you have Exchange database on this drive? If yes then move it as its logs take pretty much space.
