It looks like the drive is already one big partition with an ext3
file system on it, but it is only shown as being 9.2G. It almost
looks like the partition was resized but the file system wasn't. If
it didn't already have 5.3G of data on it, it would be tempting to
delete and recreate the file system.
Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
