    If I recall the last time someone had an issue with reported memory sizes on a nexus device the solution was to simply lock and then unlock the device again.

    You can use Wugs lock/unlock button or ADB commands

    fastboot oem lock
    fastboot oem unlock

    It would appear the devices have a very robust system wipe when you unlock the device, it will completely wipe the device including all user areas and should set the device memory back to normal once complete.
