Hi I Have a 160 GB SATA HDD that have been split into 3 partitions C , D , E
I want to combine D , E but both partitions are almost full

So is there any way for me to combine these partitions without suffering memory loss ?

No, you must backup drive E, delete drive E, then extend drive D into the empty space and restore the content of drive E from your backup.

EDIT: I stand corrected (as above) - still recommend a backup before playing with partitions though!
