Hi, I'm running a fresh install of FreeBSD 12.2-RELEASE-i386 with Xfce (dbus hald enabled) and while I can mount a 32GB usb drive from the desktop, I can't for 64GB. Both in FAT32. I can do it through mount_msdosfs but not from desktop.

What makes the difference in Xfce?

Code:
dmesg
ugen4.3: <Lexar USB Flash Drive> at usbus4
umass0 on uhub0
umass0: <Lexar USB Flash Drive, class 0/0, rev 2.00/11.00, addr 3> on usbus4
umass0:  SCSI over Bulk-Only; quirks = 0x8100
umass0:1:0: Attached to scbus1
da0 at umass-sim0 bus 0 scbus1 target 0 lun 0
da0: <Lexar USB Flash Drive 1100> Removable Direct Access SPC-2 SCSI device
da0: Serial Number AA5ZKU7DD62VQH9M
da0: 40.000MB/s transfers
da0: 61054MB (125038592 512 byte sectors)
da0: quirks=0x2<NO_6_BYTE>

I guess the problem might probably be connected with the XFCE mount utility, something related to gvfs iirc.

Something about it or did I ask a stupid question?
Not a stupid question at all. The fact that you can mount the 64GB drive using the mount_msdosfs command but not from the desktop makes it seem that it's XFCE at fault rather than FreeBSD. Therefore, you might have better luck on the XFCE forums. Be sure to mention which version of XFCE you are running.

Which files systemis on usbstick?
I think there isn't fat32 but NTFS or newer.
Try ntfs-fuse to mount usb-drive

The OP clearly stated that he could mount the usb stick on the terminal with mount_msdosfs.
