I’d recommend looking at the following guide to get familiar with how DigitalOcean’s Block Storage works. It’s a pretty in-depth guide and should help you work through the setup without any issues.

i' remember there no block storage available in the past half year as i know, is it available now?
I purchased a droplet + 100GB of block storage to do one task: server as a backup server. I am using Plesk on 2 production servers, and their backup utility only dumps he backup to an offsite location via FTP, so I essentially need ftp access into my server to dump my backups. The 20GB that came with the droplet is not enough, so I bought the extra 100GB. Is there a way that I can FTP into the 100GB volume and dump my backups? I followed the DigitalOcean tutorial on setting up FTP, but filezilla won't connect. Any help?
I am trying to change ownership of a droplet snapshot, but the attached volumes are not coming along for the ride. Can I share/change the ownership of a volume snapshot, or should I instruct the client that they should create a new volume and manually migrate the data?
I have a $5/Month Droplet, which has a 20 GB disk. Then I add a 10 GB block storage to it. Now my Droplet has 30 GB space.
But these 30 GB are not continuous, when disk1 is full, system will not write data to disk2, instead, system throw a "No space left on device" error.
So I tried to merging disks.
LVM seems to be a good choice, so I tried to convert root partition to lvm. I found some instruction on Google, but I just can't make it work, I just keep crash the system since I am a noob.
Is there a detailed Instruction for convert root partition to lvm on Droplet?
