Small Business Server 2008 Drive Space

I have a system with Small Business Server 2008 on it. They don't use Exchange or Share Point. They are running out of space on drive C.  I can see under Programs and Features that Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 are listed.

Can I safely remove any of the three items with out effecting the operating system?

None of the Items listed above have been installed.  The box is basically used for file sharing.

Is there something else that I should be looking at to remove to increase space? There is not a whole lot of extra stuff running on drive C to remove. Any suggestions?

Hello,

Have a read of the below:

I wouldn't remove them personally as they may need them/ want to use them in the future.

I had a similar problem. Turned out to be C:\WSUS - used for windows updates. I moved it to another drive. Was about 50GB.

yes you can move:

exchange,
sharepoint,
users shared data,
redirected docs
wsus

its easy and there is a wizard. goto the 'backup and storage' tab then run the wizards on the right.
