PC Is Telling C Drive Runs on Low Disk Space

"My PC is telling that C drive runs out of disk space when I attempted to install a program. My PC runs under Windows Server 2012 operating system and it asks me to delete some old files to free up disk space on C drive. C drive contains some very important programs, so I cannot delete them. Is there any other way to fix the low disk space problem without deleting any file?"

Today, my computer started to report low disk space alert on C drive, so I want to look for a method to repair the problem. Can anybody who encountered the similar problem give me some advice?"

In the other words, users can resize hard disk on Windows Server 2012 under Disk Management. You just need to open Disk Management and you can see all partitions there. Then, you can select a partition that has much free space and shrink the partition to get some unallocated space. Usually, the unallocated space will display behind the partition you shrink, but you need to move the unallocated space close to the C drive. Now, here comes the problem because Disk Management cannot move partition. If the unallocated space is not adjacent to C drive, you are unable to add the space to get the C drive extended.
