How do I regain free drive space?

During a Windows XP os reinstall I think I may have chosen a smaller partition on which to install to, as a Belarc Advisor scan shows that it is installed on Disc 0 (C drive, NTFS), but with only a 29.30 GB capacity and 13.39 GB free. An answer suggested to a previous post by another subscriber with a similar problem was to go into control panel/administration tools/computer management/disk managed and format, and change the driver number. The disc management tab shows that Disc 0 (C partition) does have 29.30 GB capacity but with 119.75 GB free, but I have no idea how to regain the unused free GB. What do I do next please?
