  • No, there's no supported way to resize your system partition. May I ask how you managed to fill it up? By design, you should never need to use the server's desktop except when your server is experiencing an issue. This would mean that you wouldn't be installing lots of software using the desktop and (presumably) your system drive wouldn't fill up.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

    Programs on WHS??? It's not for installing programs. Otherwise you've choosen the wrong product.
    Wondering what programs we're talking about here and why you need them installed.

    None.  WHS is not designed for installing applications and the 20 GB is hardcoded.
    You just did choose the product that doesn't meet your needs.
