Mount Large FAT-32 Drives in FreeBSD

First, attach the external drive you'd like to mount to your computer, then run the following command:
$ dmesg

Look for the partition name given to the drive you just attached to your computer. For example, if our drive was labeled da0:
$ sudo mount -t msdosfs -o large /dev/da0s1 /mnt

Verification - run the following commands:
$ df -lh
$ mount
