Used space on C? free space on C?

Do you have Partition magic?

Just a suggestion, in the long run you might be better off if you get a smaller drive about 30GB and use that as your C drive. Transfer all your data to the existing E drive. use your 2nd hard drive as an external backup drive by getting a usb suitable enclosure, then use Acronis Drive Image to make a clone of your OS and progs onto the external drive and backup important data on the external drive. This way if you have a problem with windows, it only takes between 5 and 15 minutes to restore win and progs
