Situations That C Drive Needs to Be Increased in Windows Server 2008

"I have a Seagate hard disk on my Windows Server 2008 PC and now C drive is running on low disk space on the PC. Windows system asks me to delete some files to free up space on C drive, but the problem is that all files stored on this partition are some important programs. I tried to uninstall some unnecessary programs, but C drive still runs on low disk space. Can I increase the size of C drive without deleting any data?"

"My computer that runs Windows Server 2008 OS is running quite slowly because I have installed too many programs on C drive and this partition is nearly full. My friend told me that I need to uninstall some programs if I want my computer to run a little faster. However, I cannot uninstall those programs. So I want to know if I can expand the C drive space. As a matter of fact, there is a lot of free space on the D drive, so I want to move some free space from D to C drive. Can you tell how to move free space from D drive to C drive on Windows Server 2008?"
