I purchased a 500GB laptop. The store created a C drive and an E drive, splitting the 500GB just about in half. I wanted to decrease the C to about 100GB and increase E to the rest so I shrunk C by the available 94,016. Now I want to extend the E to incorporate this unallocated space. What do I need to do now?dchoyin[at]yahoo.com

Try a search for 'partition manager', there are a number of options available.
I have used Easus in the past.

Remember that there is always a chance of problems occurring with ;ow level operations like this so if possible back up your data first.

Yes please always bear in mind this can go terribly wrong. I think Symantec has a partitioning tool as well try look there. Be careful this type of operation has failed on me, on more then one occasion

I know this thread has existed for a long time, but you may mess up some thing, since from your description, I think you are using windows 7, so the E partition is used for storing booting files. So you have no need to extend this partition. You could use the free space of your C partition to create a new partition for other using.

But there are many people may want to find a way safely and flexibly extend the system partition rather than use build in disk management. And I noted on this thread have not provide the flexible and easy way to resize partition. Before you may know Partition Magic but now it has been out of date, and now there have a alternative software AOMEI Partition Assistant which could manage this flexibly and safely. It is worth to try this software.
