Switching ( C: ) Drive 60GB SSD to 500GB HDD Because SSD is full

Hey
I have just realized i have almost completely filled my C drive SSD, i only have 4GB left. I have another 500GB HDD that i would like to replace my SSD with. What is the cheapest way to do this without losing any data and keeping my OS?

P.S. My HDD is currently my ( E: ) Drive but is relatively empty, I can remove the data from it.

My PC uses Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

Also think about removing some programs you rarely if ever use.
