Since Windows Server 2008 you can just right click the partition and choose shrink volume this will run out of the box.
It might need a restart to finish the operation.

I personally like to split, OS and DATA on separate partitions, to keep the system (OS) partition clean and small and move all data, databases, etc. to another partition. You can just move the common data (exchange, sharepoint, wsus and user data) using the move data wizard from the SBS console to any other available partition.
Also as you say you can't use SBS backup on partitions bigger than 2 TB, so maybe you should break it in 3 partitions, system, databases (exchange, sharepoint, wsus) and a last for files (user and company)
