I have a drive E: which has no data and is about 7.8MB in size. I would like to remove that drive and have the 7.8MB of space be put on the C: drive, is this possible? Do I delete the E drive and it should work or do i have to do something else first. Hope that made sense

Provided the partitions 'C' and 'E' are on the same physical hard disk and are also contiguous (ie next to each other-- PM will verify this) you can use PM to 'Merge' them both together. If they aren't next to each other you can't do that.

Alternatively, you could simply delete the 'E' partition in Windows Control Panel so that you don't see it as a drive anymore in Windows Explorer, but that would not free up the space to use elsewhere. Frankly, since it's only 7.8Mb, that would be the simplest option. Just delete it. You're not losing much, certainly not enough to worry about and not enough to make merging it worthwhile.

Well, you could do that. But even though 7.8 mb is hardly worth the effort, you could use the resize command to append the free space to C:. You could alternatively try the, after deleting E:, "Reclaim Free Space" command. The only reason I would do that is becuase I'm a perfectionist, but othewise, just ignore it, as said above.
