You can not do this as these are two different disks, you can extend a partition within a drive but not to another drive.

You are welcome, you can manually move any data/documents/pictures to the E drive.

You cannot extend C: drive unless you convert to dynamic disk without data loss to create spanned volume. note that there is a risk that system may fail to boot after the conversion. Separated dynamic disk can be combined into a single dynamic volume, split data among several dynamic disks for increased performance, or duplicate data among several dynamic disks for increased reliability. It can resize the dynamic volume without reinstalling the windows system.

Sounds like a good [DEL]excuse[/DEL] time to pick up a 250GB or larger SSD drive to replace the 120GB drive you now have :)
