Have you tried it in a different system? What does it show in Properties if you rightclick?

Every storage system must have some space for information/program etc. You buy a 500 gig HD and your not going to get 500 gigs. You have a 16 gig iPod you won't have 16 gigs.

Your pen drive is fine, there's nothing to fix.

KWB your maths don't add up. 2gb in drive makers language is 2000mb
OP says his drive shows only 190mb or approx 10% of original capacity. That is certainly a problem. Whether there is a way to fix it is another matter. If there is no important data on the drive ( and there shouldn't be. These type of flash drives should only be used as a transfer medium) then it may be possible to format the drive and recover the full capacity. If that fails then spring the $5 for a replacement.
