C Drive Is Getting Full on SBS 2003

"When installing the system, it only allocated about 10GB space to C drive and now C drive is nearly full due to more and more data storage. There are two another partitions on the same hard disk, so I want to move some free space from either of these two partitions to extend C drive space. I tried to open Disk Management, but it seems that there is no extend volume option there. I am wondering if I can expand C drive space on SBS 2003 with any Windows built-in partition tool or any third-party partition software."

"C drive gets full after installing some programs on this partition, but I don't want to uninstall those programs because they are very important to me. Can I resize the hard disk to reallocate more space for C drive? If it is possible, can anybody tell me how to resize C drive o n SBS 2003?"
