Copy the data you need from 2nd partition to first partition.
Then you will have to use a third party partition software like Partition Magic or one of the several free ones to expand the first partition out.
You will need to delete the second partition then stretch the first one out.

You don't have enough free space really to copy everything over to either drive.
Now that all depends on what you were thinking to copy over.
Before we go any further can you give me the make and model of your system?
I think what you really need to do is to get a larger hd and partition it into a large partition then you can clone over your C or main drive to it.
Then you can copy over the data from second drive you want to keep to the new drive.
What do you think?

Do you have any programs that cannot be replaced?
How about data that you really want to save... pictures, music, videos, documents?

I'm a Western Digital person but it really depends on what you like.
This will be a drawn out process but don't worry we will be here to assist you.
If we get the right cloning software we should be able to clone the master drive over. Then copy the data from the other drive to the new drive.
From there we will see what the best options is for the older drives.
