Partioning

Our computer recoginzes C: 119.14 gb which is the SSD and E: System reserve 119.14 gb. It does not recoginize J: 1863.02 gb which is the HDD it does not see anything on the J drive and there is what can we do? Can we just delete the E drive or move everything over to the E drive and delete the J drive? What has me confused is the amount of space is on the J drive not the E drive. Our OS is on the SSD.

You E; drive is usually the Hidden partition that win7 creates when it is installed. Do you know how it got the letter E: ? Your J: drive looks completely empty and is actually your second physical hard drive.
