I like Easeus Partition Manager for resizing Partitions. It's a good idea (imho) to store data on a partition other than the one that houses the OS.

You know you can download and/or install directly to the E drive. Just change the path. You just need to read all screens when presented.

If E is a partition on the same hard drive a C then you can use a third party program like Easeus to do what you requested.

Backup all information because things can go wrong. Hard drives will eventually fail anyway so you should maintain backups now.

How big is your HDD & how is it partitioned? What exactly is 'E'? If it's the factory restore partiton, do NOT install anything into it. As for your C being full, that's your fault for not properly controlling your installations, data storage, temp files, etc, etc. If you're not the type of person that practices routine maintenance, try installing CCleaner-Slim. Run it & remove everything it finds. It will probably remove GB's of accumulated garbage files. And uninstall any old programs you no longer need/use.

Also, temporarily disable System Restore. Doing so will delete ALL restore points & free up even more space. Reboot, re-enable system restore, adjust the slider to set the max amount of space used to 200MB, then immediately create a restore point.

In addition to what's been said, you can use a Junction point or symbolic link to mount [part of] E within C, or convert E to a dynamic volume as an extension of C.
