If the .ost is the only problem, move it to another volume.

Move an offline Outlook Data File (.ost)

OST Files are realted to outlook. They are the equivalent of PST Files for exchange mailboxes.

As for the size of the OST Itself. If you are the manager of the exchange server in question, you may try to check if you have too many "Send As" or other permissions as they tend to inflate OST Files. Also consider deleting old emails that are no longer needed.
and yes, as stated here before, If Needed, Move the OST file to another Volume to save space on the C Drive.
