If I decide to 'clone' my 'D' drive instead, when I then go into 'E' will I see exactly what is in 'D', i.e. all of the directories/sub directories, files and folders. If cloning gives me this, then this is what I am looking to achieve and so my next question is, how do I do it?

Thanks to all who are trying to help me, tis much appreciated.
You are correct. That's how you will see the E drive with the 2 different methods. Note that making an Image will save space.

Macrium Reflect Free Edition should do the trick for you. I have not tried it my self, but it should be a good free cloning tool.
