    In which tool do you see this? Windows Explorer or Disk Management?
    Has the drive any partition made or is it blank?

    If you have no data located on E: it could be quite easy.

    So, if you are certain that nothing of value is on E:, you could delete the partition E: in Disk Management, then rightclick C: and choose Extend - and make sure it fills the entire disk.
