Shrink volume size limit

Hi guys,
I have a server running Windows Small Business Sever. I have 4 logical partition on the disk.

c drive 60 GB - Operating system
d drive 401 GB - data
e drive 3 GB - recovery
system reserve drive 50 MB

C drive is filling up, it has 4 GB of free space. I want to shrink d drive, and expand c drive.
D drive has 220 GB of free space, however the system is only letting me to shrink 3 GB. Is there a work around to shrink a larger volume?
Thanks

You would have to use a 3rd party utility to shrink the volumes.  I thought SBS usually throws a little fit if you don't give it about 80 to 120 for the root directory (could be wrong).  Otherwise did you move all the databases over like sharepoint, WSUS, and exchange over to the data drive so you don't have to really worry about the root directory growing?
