Question

Can't create a high cpu droplet with a 2.6 GB droplet.

I created a regular droplet in Singapore. Took a snapshot of it. Added it to Bangalore. Then tried to create a high cpu, but It displays an error that there is not enough disk space. The snapshot is 2.6 GB.

I have contacted support and they gave me an answer. This was my last reply:

To clarify, you’re considering the total allocated disk space, not the actual disk space used. The uncompressed droplet uses a total of ~6GB (see below). This means that you can only create a high cpu droplet from a snapshot of a $5 droplet. Disappointing.
