I need to format my system and i don't have sufficient amount of DVD's along with me. Now, i want to move the data from one partition to another partition (from C to E). How could i do that without using the original windows copy or tera copy which takes a lot of time for my 32GB hard drive.

Is there any quick way?

32GB is small. I would use Teracopy.

How about a clone copy with MacriumReflect.

You don't have to copy the whole drive, just your user data. I would use the normal 'Copy to folder' function and go to lunch. Even if it is 32GB (which I doubt is the size of your user folders), it will not take too long.
