Windows 7: Deleting partition

Deleting partition

so i messed up again....

I was going to install windows xp in a seperate partition on my hard drive but didnt need to in the because that was a different matter. But then i wanted to delete that partition that i created and restore my original storage back on to my hard drive. But all i did was delete the partition and now i am missing the amount of storage that i used to have. Is there a way to get it back without re-formatting, hopefully a simple way?

after note: just realized its moved to unallocated space, how do i add that to C: drive?

I would format as a DATA partition.
