Default lost h drive space after partition and reformat

hi everyone
my hard drive is 250 gb which was split into 4 partitions, made with norton partition magic. i deleted all the partitions except for C: and reformatted the drive. re-installed xp and now my C: drive is only 120gb, when i deleted the other partitions, i thought they would just go back on the C: drive

how can i get that space back without having to format again, any help would be great

ps: file system ntfs

They are now unallocated space, use NPM to redistribute the free space to C. Then defragment your system.
