I recently wrote a tutorial with instructions on how to downgrade/downsize droplets.
Was there ever an answer to the above question?
"Cannot create a droplet with a smaller disk (20GB) than the image (40GB)."
I am trying to downgrade a server to a smaller instance and I am receiving the same message... The image I have is only using 4GB of the instances space.
