you can technically "rename" any partition but you cannot change drive letters on the boot partition c:. I would uninstall some programs from the c: and reinstall them on the f:. There are 3rd party products like partition magic that let you re-size partitions but the good ones are not free.

This may be due to several factors:
1: You may have installed an "always active" programs(like some anti virus or spyware) which may be eating your RAM space... Remove those and always remember that only install software which your system can stand up to.

2: Try to clear temp files by doing Start>Run> Type "%temp%">Delete all files in that..
Note: Some files may be active and you may not be able to delete those...

3:May be you are having a possible virus attack. Try to remove it by using a good antivirus(which also suites your system)

4: Now If problem persists then try to format your system and make a fresh install of your OS.

If your files are in "My Music" and the "My Documents" is not shared, then nobody can view them from another PC. Try copying the files to your shared files directory and see if you can access them then.

Generally, yes, if it's the same version, (e.g., "Home Edition, or "Professional", etc.Then the Operating System disk should get you going well enough to start all the necessary updates You may need to go to Dell and download the model specific driver files, updates, etc. to get everything !00%
Make sure you have the right Microsoft Product key for the installation.
Best thing you can do is back up your system and keep it somewhere separate, with all this info. There are many good free utilities for system specs., such as Belarc Advisor. It's easier to fix a broken system when you can automatically put everything right from backups, where ever possible.You are thinking ahead, instead of after a disaster!
Good luck.!
