Default Local Disks Question

Hello all, I have a 250GB Seagate hard drive that is split into two disks (One is Local Disk C and other is Local Disk E).

My question is how would I go about to combine the E disk into the C disk?

Or you can use Partition magic it will combine them and not damage your files.

Download GParted, it's free, it runs off a CD, done deal.

Norton Partition Magic is a good application but it's not free. GParted will be able to let you merge the E: partition (assume it's the same file system (NTFS)) without having to format anything. I assume so, but I haven't tested it out to be sure.
