I wanted to merge my E drive (20 gb) with C drive. I have removed the drive E and now i can see 20gb of free space in disk management. I dont know how to allocate that 20gb with Drive C which is already 20gb. In other words, i want to create a 40gb Drive C. Someone help me out here?

Have you looked at disk management in the control panel? There may be a way to do it there without 3rd party software. However, I would have made the E: drive bigger and moved all my files there. That way if I have to replace the system folders, I could reinstall without losing files.

Yeah i looked at the disk management, thats where i freed the 20gb from Drive E.. I just dont know how to merge it with another drive. I cant see any option for that in disk management.

My E drive was completely empty, so i thought i should merge it with another drive.

You could convert the entire disk to a dynamic disk and once that is done you should be able to make E: and extended partition. Technically it isn't merging, you will still have two partitions but windows will see it as one.
