Hello @khuramjavaid

If I understand correctly you get that the volume is mounted but the total disk size is not 50GB and 395MB? Was the volume resized at some point or this is not the case?

You can check the docs about mounting volume here:

Hope that this helps!

Hey @khuramjavaid,

I would assume you followed these steps:

Is that correct?

Additionally, when you enter your Droplet and type in

df -h

what do you see?

And if you list the mountpoints do you see the volume?

mount -l
