Ummm, don't put more 200G worth of data in there?  :)

You didn't give us any information about what you're using the database
for, why you think that using 200G is excessive, what version of the
database you're running, stuff like that.  So really there's nothing
that we can help you out with, except for the normal "read the manual
about vacuuming and make sure you're doing it" newbie answer.
