It reads on the datasheet of USG-3P that on-board storage is 2GB, but when I plug the USB stick into my PC, it displays that the capacity is just 139MB. What's the matter????
Files in the USB stick is presented in the followed screent shot, what's the meaning of these files?
Can I replace the USB stick with another one?

The USG-3P is a router, does not have USB ports and the onboard storage is not a user-serviceable part. I think you mean a different product, unless you have some pictures of the device in question that you can attach showing us what is happening?

That USB stick contains the operating system for your USG. You should not be messing around with it at all.
It could brick your USG entirely, and there is nothing usefull you can do with it as a user.

The USB stick is not for storing files, it is for the routers OS only.
It will be formatted as a linux filesystem, this is why you only see XMB instead of the 2GB you mentioned before. It is perfectly functional.
Not sure why you would be messing around with this....
If you needed to replace the usb stick theoretically I guess you could you Win32DiskImager, clone the usb stick and its other partitions to a .img, then reflash it to a new USB stick but I wouldn't recommend it nor have I tried it.

I cannot stress this enough, though: the USB drive is not a user serviceable part on the USG-3P. Unless you're hardware hacking and don't care about the warranty, you should not attempt to access the storage.
