Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit reinstall. Saved to wrong partition.
I reinstalled Windows 7 from the original operating disk. I saved everything to the Recovery partition (I didn't know any better). After installation, I tried to add software to my laptop but it said I didn't have enough space!
I reinstalled Windows 7 again, this time saving it to C:. But, I don't know if it worked or not. My computer says I don't have enough space to add software to my laptop.
My computer shows:
OS C: 139GB free of 218GB and
Recovery E: 349MB free of 14.6GB.
How can I correct this? Can someone please help me? I'm no techie, but I can follow step-by-steps instructions. Thanks in advance!

It's too late to make your Recovery disks since you reinstalled, and your Recovery partition likely won't boot now.
However since you clean reinstalled you probably don't want the preinstalled factory bloatware anyway. If you do, then I'd try running Factory Recovery to see if there's a slim chance it might still run. Dell Restoring Your Computer´s Software to the Factory Settings . You may need to delete your files off of Recovery to get it to run from boot using F8 key.
If it won't run check what software is available for your model on the manufacturer's Support Downloads webpage. You can always order Recovery Disks from Tech Support.
If you prefer the clean reinstall then I would follow these steps to get a perfect Clean Reinstall Windows 7 Factory OEM.
During install choose the Custom install Drive Options to delete all partitions and create new ones as you wish, or after deleting just click Next and the installer will format one install partition.
Be sure to back up your files first.
