It appears you have a 1.5TB HDD formated as FAT32? Microsoft's FAT32 formating utility only supports up to 32GB, so either your HDD was formatted using a 3rd party utility or it's an extenal HDD or it was taken from an external enclosure & used as an internal HDD. Me thinks your explanation is incomplete.
