Microsoft Windows 7 home premium

Specs: Windows 7
Hello guys, here's my problem.
I did a clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium. Before the clean install, it was the same exact OS except i upgraded it from vista. I wanted a clean install. So i did it. Now when i check my Hard drive, its still 464GB out of 685GB. The same exact space left before i did the clean install.

I would now like to know how to format the drive. So i can have a completely clean windows 7 install with a completely clean hard drive. Problem is, when i go to Manage>Storage>Disk Management, and i go to my C: drive, I right click it and i am unable to press format, because it is greyed out, the option is unavailable.

So how can i go about, and format my C: drive for a clean install of Windows 7 and a clean hard drive?
