    Clean drive 0 and create a new partition
    - Copy everything from E: to C:
    - Open a CMD window as administrator and type:

    diskpart
    list disk (it will list all drives. Identify the drive number - Probably 0 )
    select disk n (replace n by the drive number obtained with list disk- Probably 0 )
    clean
    convert GPT
    create part primary
    select part 1
    format fs=NTFS quick
    assign letter=E
    exit (to exit diskpart)

    Thanks so much for this. I definitely need the dumbed down version, I'm a noob at this stuff.

    What's the easiest way to copy everything from E: to C:? I open E: and there's basically nothing in there.

    When I type format fs=NTFS quick it returns with: There is no volume selected. Please select a volume and try again. It does say Partition 1 is now the selected partition after the previous step.

    Thanks!

    Did you do the other commands before the format?

    You have too many partitions, several are missing drive letters, several missing formatting, you have several recovery partitions?... explain? Needs a good clean up, people have suggested this earlier.

    I tried following Megahert'z suggestions and it didn't work. I have no idea how to do this stuff unfortunately, so all I can do is follow steps. "When I type format fs=NTFS quick it returns with: There is no volume selected. Please select a volume and try again. It does say Partition 1 is now the selected partition after the previous step." <-- this is what happened.

    Is there someone I can hire to remote in and just fix the issue? I would be very happy and willing to do that.
