I have windows XP Pro and my C drive is full as in no more space, but I have a lot of extra room in my E drive. 12GB for C drive full and 44GB for E drive which there is only about 29GB used. Is ther a way to combind the 2 drives into one C drive for the whole thing to have some space without loss of data??? I would like find a way to do this them back up the computer and replace the hard drive with a larger one and make it all one drive, is this possible?

If 'C' and 'E' are on the same physical disk you can 'merge' the two partitions into just one 'C' partition, or just "resize" 'C' by taking some of the free space from 'E' and moving to it over to 'C', but either of these options will require specialist software such as "Partition Magic" here:

Without additional software you will have to format the drive from scratch into a single partition which will obviously destroy your existing Windows installation -- then re-install Windows.
