    Copy all needed files from E to C.
    Right click computer, then manage, open Disk management.
    Right click the E partition and choose delete. Then right click C and select Extend.
    I suggest leaving though 2 partitions. If needing to format and reinstall Windows, you would have the possibility to copy files on E and format C.

    Care.. you can only do this if they are current two partions on the same drive..
    Can OP confirm this? or are they physically 2 separate drives?
    If they separate drives it gets more messy

    Cheers

    Right. Thank you.
    So, question: How many hard drives connected to the motherboard, one or two?
    Or, better: can you capture the screen with Disk management and post it?
    Something similar to:

  6. Hi friend, this is very easy, but i advise you should always have minimum two drives this will helpful for you in data recovery. The way to have only one drive is
    1) Copy all the data from E to C
    2) Then right click on my computer.
    3) Here you see an option manage drives
    4) Right click on the E and the delete option
    5) Now extend your C drive.
