I think the correct answer is that pfSense is not your normal home router software. It doesn't act as a server, allowing you to access data from a USB flash drive or hard drive over your network. Security-minded individuals realize that ANY server running on an internet-connected firewall is a potential security risk, and thus the functionality you're looking for is not included with pfSense "out of the box".
Whether someone has packaged up Samba so that you can do what you're asking about, I don't know.
