Can I add the Block Storage to my main drive?
I’m new to DO and I have this question that I haven’t found an answer to in the forums.
I have the most basic droplet ($5 one) and would like to extend its stroage space.
However, if I understand correctly, if I buy a block storage it would be added as an additional drive and I’d be ‘losing’ my 20GB main drive, I wanted to know if there’s a way to add the block storage space to the main drive so that they would be a single drive.
If you didn’t understand me, let’s say I want to host a 40GB file. I wan to be able to use my basic 20GB and purchase an additional 20GB block storage instead of buying a 40GB block storage and not using my main drive, like some king of a RAID array.
