Cases about Low Disk Space Problem on Windows 2003

"The C drive runs on low disk space on Windows Server 2003. Can I increase the size of C drive without reinstalling the operating system? The Windows Server OS is installed on this drive, so I am afraid that it will cause damage to operating system due to improper operation on the C drive. Can anybody tell a reliable method to fix low disk space on system partition on Windows Server 2003?"

Pay Attention

IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server allows you to extend the system partition space with no influence on operating system or disk data, but you can only move free space from other partition (s) on the same hard disk. In other words, free space on the same hard disk is always needed in order to extend system partition. If there is no free space on all partitions on the same hard disk, you cannot extend the system partition by adding a new hard disk. Adding new disk should be built with RAID to get the free space to c drive.
