Hey @xweb365

If you change the size of a droplet, your data is preserved in a resizing.

If you elect to accept the increased drive space your disk capacity will also increase. If you elect not to do this your storage will stay the same, but your CPU and RAM will increase, this has the added benefit of been able to downgrade again (disk space been the limiting factor for downgrading).

TLDR: Yes data will be preserved.
