there is one piece of software that might help before you go and install windows again. its called Gparted Live.

It basically boots up a distro of Linux and lets you edit you partitions sizes and what have you not. Just delete the Data (200GB) and join it with the Main. the backup wont be touched.

Edit: heres the link http://gparted.sourceforge.net/

Keep in mind WEI is complete garbage.

Glad you're more content without a bloated install, though.

All you had to do was

Delete The D: Partiton First and then Disk Managment would have let you extend the C Partiton.

Has already been stated, but won't necessarily remove all of the bloatware crap that shipped on it. Doing a fresh install takes less time than trying to hunt down every non-vanilla installation item that was preexisting..
