Can I make a droplet with less than 25GB space?

I’ve used the Basic droplet feature…

Can I make a “droplet”(VPS) with less than 25GB space?

That way if I make a snapshot and destroy the droplet, then the snapshot(which I understand is charged per GB storage), will be cheaper for me to keep.

Yes, the 25GB droplet is the smallest system disk size. In order to reduce cost you can simply do manual backups and host them to a remote server. In this way the size of the droplet will not affect you and will not increase the monthly cost.

And you are correct, Snapshots are charged at $0.05/GiB USD per month, based on the size of the snapshot, not the size of the filesystem being saved.
