Default Restoring my computer

Hello, can anyone help me! I really want to restore my computer to when it had 80Gb and now it only has about 22GB, how do i do this? but there is one problem i re-installed windows about 5 times to see if i would get my memory back and to restore my computer back to normal, but this did nothing, what do i do? will i have to buy software or should i be able just to restore it from the Windows Xp disk? ( My operating system is windows XP ) Please can anyone help me!!!

First thing did you make sure your primary partition is using all of the 80 gigs of space?
