How can I fix this issue?

The drive that my computer uses for everything is the C:\ drive, but for some reason it doesn't have the most space. The E drive has all the space and nothing happens on it. How can I put all that space onto the C drive or what solutions are there for me?

Hi there TopazioRav,

Well, you have two physical drives.
Your primary one, most probably an SSD, is your C: drive.

Your secondary one, most probably a mechanical drive (HDD), is your D: drive. This would not start automatically filling up with data. You need to put it over there.
So, you can move all of the data like: documents, pics, vids, etc, to your D: drive. Also, most of the apps ask you about an installation location during the installation process. You need to navigate to D:.

Here's an extensive tutorial on how to free up some space on C: http://www.howtogeek.com/125923/7-ways-to-free-up-hard-disk-space-on-windows/

Let me know in case you have some more questions,
