File Server Re Build

Last Modified: 2015-05-07
I have a file Server running on Windows 2003, due to its end of support we have planned to upgrade the Server to Windows 2008, But will not be able to perform an in-place Upgrade due to the following reasons

01) The Server C Drive is only 16 GB
02) Server has Only 2 GB Currently.

S0 We have planned to Upgrade the Memory to 4 GB / 8 GB and then reinstall the OS to 2008  on the Server by Re Partitioning the existing Disk, But the Challenge is about the file Shares.

There are close to 300 Shares on the Server residing on a separate Disk and I Cant migrate then to another server due to space Issue.

Can you please suggest a better way to Archive this using Native tools.
