How do I merge two drives?

Hello Friends,
I have purchased a Sony Vaio laptop day before yesterday.I forgot to get the drive partitioned at the store and so decided to to it myself and i made a blunder.I wanted to allocate 60GB to C Drive and rest to the new Drive, but i allocated it the other way.But My when i open the My Computer, there is no partition as such although in Control panel it is being displayed as 50 GB free and upon right clicking I have an option to delete that 50 GB disk but i am not sure if upon deleting it whether i loose this space.
Also my HD was 320 GB which now shows to be only 232 GB ( C DRIVE).Where have i lost this good amount of space?I have tried fragmenting but it executes in cycle reading % consolidation.Once it reaches 100 % it starts again from 1%.Thrice it happened and then i stopped the operation and did the restoration but i don't see any change.
Kindly help.
