I have a droplet and the hard drive which is mounted on / is 30 Gb.
I have added a 100 Gb volume which is mounted under /mnt/..
I want to combine the 2 volumes and increase the overall capacity of / to 130 Gb.

Right now, merging two volumes is not possible unfortunately. You would need to either resize the 100GB volume and then migrate the data from the 30GB over, or create a 130GB volume and migrate the data from both over to the new one.
