Hello @mrping01

At this time, DigitalOcean does not provide a built-in graphical user interface (GUI) for managing volumes. All volume-related tasks such as creating, attaching, detaching, and resizing volumes need to be performed via the DigitalOcean Control Panel or the DigitalOcean API.

Data within the volumes can be managed using SSH, sFTP, or by deploying and configuring an application that provides a web interface, for example, a file manager.

Please refer to the DigitalOcean document “How To Use Block Storage on DigitalOcean” for detailed steps on how to manage volumes.

Hey @mrping01,

I don’t think there is such a possibility since you attach them to the Droplet, you’ll need to manage the volumes and their content from the Droplet itself.
