Isn't that more likely to be something like /dev/sdc1 ?
What's in /etc/fstab ?

THANK YOU!!! But there is an error in command xfs_growfs. I try this command

(cylinder wise) other partitions (IE it is at the end of the disk) you
*should* be able to change the size of the partition, then use
xfs_growfs to make it fit the new partition size.
