Question

downsize droplet

I created a droplet with a 40Gb disk and created a snapshot, I want to create a smaller droplet with that snapshot, at this point it says it is not possible and needs to be the same disk size… how can I do this?? I don’t want to start all over the configuration

Oh the joys!

Oh, I thought it was possible, sorry for the wrong answer!

Support responded this yesterday, it is not possible, so for anyone working their first snapshot in a large droplet, be careful, better configure and optimize in the smallest droplet and the use that snapshot for larger ones… that is what I’m doing now
