Seems ridiculous to put a 1tb disk in a router. Just my 2 cents.

Maybe there is pin, that limits capacity to 32 Gigs, or some settings in bios.

well,what bios is showing is what it is showing, that is reported back AFAIK. Mikrotik is neutral to all motherboard vendors.

edit:

also, for FTP server i would suggest to install FTP server, as that will provide with more FTP features than FTP server in RouterOS. That is - if you really need FTP server, and not some small and temporal data storage, and 1TB is hard to call temporary or small. At least in year 2009.
