Wow. I'm glad you told me this ahead of time before I backed up ~200 GB of data and blanked out the entire disk before making new partitions.

The partition should not have been created with its present size
But I don't see sda3 and sda4 so it can be the remnant of some deleted partition(s)
I don't recall there ever being an sda3 or an sda4. I've been using the same partitioning scale as always: /root, /home, swap, then data. I have, however, re-sized and deleted data partitions any number of times.
So, are you essentially saying there's no solution then?
