My hard drive only has 30 gb total listed despite being a 1tb drive. Any thing I can do to fix it without needing to reinstall windows?

Right-click "This PC" and click manage. Then click on disk management and post a screenshot.

On the surface, it doesn't look like there would be a way to fix that without re-installing Windows. I'd suggest a complete reinstall and wipe out the existing partitions.

Out of curiosity, what were you doing before you noticed this? Did you change any of the BIOS defaults?

move or delete some shit, or disable pagefile/hibernation, so you have some space to shrink it, then extend again

Huh, that's interesting. I'd probably have a look with GParted.
