Windows 7: LF Help - Laptop HDD Space Problem

LF Help - Laptop HDD Space Problem

So, outta nowhere recently, my girlfriend's mini notebook (which has 1tb HDD) randomly said there's no space. I checked partition manager, and it says it's only about 28 or 32gb on the free space.
This can't be right. I've searched many tutorials that look like exactly what I need, but nothing works.

It's only used for her to get on Facebook, so I have no idea what's going on.

Help would be greatly appreciated.

Last. Please don't bother telling me to use google. I did. I'm not sure what to do.

BTW - There's no unallocated space.

Disk Management clearly says you have a 29 GB hard drive.

Can you please run Diskpart by using command Prompt.

Run command prompt as Administrator, then type Diskpart and hit enter, then type list disk and hit enter, then post a snip.

Can you install Partition Wizard and post a shot. And please click the paperclip icon in your reply to upload pictures and snips.

Something is clearly wrong here if it`s a 1 TB drive, space does not just disappear on it`s own.

And please remove Disk 1 from the notebook.
