It is likely that the Auto Portrait Framing setting was enabled accidentally. You need to go through the menu system and turn it off.

When Auto Portrait Framing is selected, you get two images...  the original image as shot and the auto-cropped image but the cropped image is upscaled automatically to the full 6000x4000 pixels...  no half images.    I never use auto portrait framing but I did just test it on my camera because I thought the above info was incorrect.

It is possible, however, that the original poster didn't explain his problem well enough.  Getting a half image is quite different than getting a cropped and upscaled image.
