fdisk is used to create and manipulate old-style MBR partition tables, which have a hard partition size limit of 2 Tb.

As you can see from the output form fdisk, the drive reports the number of sectors to be 5860533168, but your partition (/dev/sda1) only covers sectors 2048 - 4294967294. To use the entire drive, you'll have to switch to a GUID partition table (GPT), which also means using a different partitioning tool (like parted).

Squid is an application. It deals with files in a file system, and does not care about partitions or partition types.
