Is there have unallocated space right side the system partition? If yes, you could use Diskpart command to extend the partition. here are the steps:
Step1: Click "Start" > "Programs" > "Accessories" > "Command Prompt", type "diskpart" and press "Enter" to continue.

Step2: Type "list volume" to display the existing volumes on the disks.

Step3: Type "select volume 0". The number is the data volume that you want to extend.

Step4: Type "extend size=10240" a proper size.

I suddenly find this question when i am searching for something. i wanna share my ways for the users who may need. first, low disk space is usually caused by there is no enough free space on system partition. usually, you can extend partition with disk management built-in server 2003. but you should know that the extend volume is only available when there is unallocated space contiguous behind the partition you need to extend, otherwise the extend volume will gray out. i have been troubled by this. at the same time, you cannot move partition with disk in this situation, third-party software may be your choice.

i use third-party software aomei partition assistant server to solve the may like the easy-to-use interface and safety
