Use Spacesniffer to see what is occupying the most space. I suspect it will be logfiles or the Winsxs folder.

Also, please confirm what services are running on the server, e.g. Exchange, Symantec Endpoint Protection, WSUS...as these can create sizeable swings in available disk space so would be good to know what the server is being used for.
