How can I gain the free space from FAT32 drive (E:)?

By safesonic ·
I have inherited a desktop pc running Windows XP Home Edition with the following setup:

Disk 0(C:)6.13GB NTFS -system [4.86GB Free]
Disk 0(E:)22.50 GB FAT32 [20.22GB Free]
Disk 1(D:)6.01 GB NTFS - Boot [30MB Free]

Both are Basic drives. There is data on each drive.Windows is continually warning of low disk space, what is the best method to allocate the space from E without losing any data?

Any ideas would be appreciated.

I thought these two partitions were on the same HHD:-
Disk 0(C:)
Disk 0(E:)
Please clarify this for us Safesonic, and exactly which Partitions? are warning of low space?

Partition D does not have to follow C. The Drives on his computer have been designated in a different order/out of order, and that?s ok.

D Drive is simply full. Need to put stuff else where like E Drive, or buy more space like another internal HD or external HD.

I seen OS's warn of low disk space at 4GB, DVD burners alone need 4-8GB of free space to copy full disks
