Is it a windows server? if so, the answer is NO.  In many cases I have deleted 1 gig worth of files on a server that only had 200mb free space.  Be sure to empty the recycle bin.

You should be fine, I would advise installing the Server Feature called "Desktop Experience". This will give you access to disk cleanup.
