Default [Q][HD+] CM11 eMMC shows drastic reduce in internal storage total size?

I recently set up a friend of mine with CM11, installed to eMMC, on their 32GB HD+. However, they complain that their internal storage has shrunk to about 2GB. How can I get the other space back? I know some space is eaten by a factory reset image and the OS itself, but there should still be far more space than that.

What do they mean by internal storage? And how are they determining it is only 2GB? When you set up CM11 for them, did you factory reset and delete all the media files they had stored on /sdcard?

It seems they left out a few of the details when they called originally. The internal storage actually shows 27GB total but 2GB available.
A simple wipe should fix that, as you mention.
They report that they can't load files to their external SD card over MTP because it doesn't show up in Windows Explorer, though. Is this a CM11 problem in particular (it recognizes there's an SD card plugged in at least)?

It's not obvious, but under Settings > Storage, in the upper right, there are 3 vertical dots that are a drop down menu. When you tap it, it says "USB computer connection." Make sure MTP is enabled.
