My © drive only has about 2GB left free for use but my partition drive/extra drive (E) has 90GB free,

My documents is the one taking up the majority of the room on the © drive, it is possible to operate my documents out of (E) drive rather than © or will this cause problems when using iTunes, installing programmes/programme updates etc.

Would there be any benefits or draw backs from moving it over to the (E) drive or would it be more hassle then it is worth?

There's no problem at all moving My Documents to a different drive. Right-click on the folder, drag, select "move"

You can also use either Disk Management or a 3rd party app such as Easeus Partition Master to reallocate space on your drive.
