You should NOT do that, the wine C: should NOT be a real windows C: drive! 
You could end up in a non-working Wine and maybe even a non-working Windows if you do changes to the Windows C: drive using Wine!
Also keep in mind that Wine uses an own registry so you can't use most programs installed on Windows from Wine anyway, instead you should reinstall them in Wine using a seperate C: drive for Wine.
