Yes, you need a much larger System disk. Personally, I would not do anything less than a 100GB drive. Through time and upgrades etc.. your system tends to grow somewhat.

23GB would not be abnormal for a Windows directory

Well I am running this server on Hyper-V with SSD drives and they are still expensive.

Well that wasn't mentioned... Sorry, perhaps you can tell me your setup in some detail then? I still would not allocate anything less than 50GB Fixed Disk space and 32GB of RAM

 Microsoft recommends allocating disk space using the following formula:

"15 GB + the amount of virtual memory allocated to the VM in question"
