Question HDD showing incorrect storage capacity

I recently built a gaming PC and installed a 480GB SSD and a 2TB HDD for memory. I booted windows from a USB drive onto the SSD and went to add the HDD as a drive after setting up the computer. When I was inputting settings for the drive (capacity/name/etc.) I must have set the capacity to GB instead of TB because when I check the storage available on the HDD it reads as 1.97GB. Even when deleting the volume and adding it again as a simple volume, it still registers as only having around 2 gb of memory. Is there a way to reset this hard drive to its original capacity?
 
Can you check your BIOS that it is seeing your HDD?
I don't think that's your HD. Another guy on this forum had a similar problem and it turned out to be some RAM he had plugged in, which windows sees on the motherboard, like a fast cache.
Maybe list your computer specs
