You have to delete E: entirely, as I have said several times. Right click on it, select Delete.

The Help for Extend a simple or spanned volume reads

"A spanned volume is a dynamic volume that consists of disk space on more than one physical disk. If a simple volume is not a system volume or boot volume, you can extend across additional disks. If you extend a simple volume across multiple disks, it becomes a spanned volume.

You can extend a volume only if it does not have a file system or if it is formatted using the NTFS file system. You cannot extend volumes formatted using FAT or FAT32."

As E: is now allocated for paging files Does it comes under system volume

If possible,Can i get the steps to be followed to expand C: volume from E:

I do understand that you are afraid of breaking anything. But really you know what to do.
Move the pagefile back to C: and set E: to "No pagefile". Refer to my directions.
Reboot.
With Disk Management:

Delete E: (right click E: and select "Delete Volume").
Expand C: but leave enough empty space for E: (right click C: and select "Extend Volume").
Create E: in the empty (unallocated) space. (right click Unallocated and select "New Simple Volume". The Wizard will tell you the size. Click Next.)

It is impossible for me to help you at a distance with no info. Please make a screen shot of your Disk Management screen.

"Free space" is odd - it should be saying "Unallocated". Right click the Free space and see what it says in Properties.

I believe if you delete the "Free space" it will become unallocated space that you can extend the C: partition partition into.

Honestly, I don't know why it doesn't offer you Delete Partition.
Choose New Simple Volume. Then Delete Partition.

I don't know. It should create unallocated space.
