How can I fix disk/volume size after rebuilding droplet?

I recently rebuilt my droplet. I noticed after doing so that the output of ‘df -h’ now no longer shows the correct allocation of 30 Gb disk space as it did before. Instead the root directory is only allocated 2.9 Gb. How can I fix this? I used the Fedora 24 base image when rebuilding the droplet.

I’m not sure this is the best solution for DigitalOcean servers (hopefully I haven’t broken any features provided by DigitalOcean), but I was able to extend /dev/vda1 using ‘parted’.
