Heya, @hossam30970555

You can create a volume and then attach it to your droplet. The tricky part will be the formatting and mounting but this might be doable from the Disk Management menu in Windows.

Keep in mind that Windows OS is not natively supported on DigitalOcean but there are workaround to use it as your primary OS via custom ISO images.

You can check this article on adding new volumes to droplets.

Hope that this helps!
