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.

Some additional items and viewing hidden items like 30GB of baby pictures in the users redirected my documents folder are covered in the following link.

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.
