How to increase storage of a running sftp server on droplets

Hi,
I am running a sftp server on a droplet. I need to increase the storage space in the server. I see that there is a option to attach a Block Storage volume to the droplet. But after doing the auto mount/format etc.. I don’t see the extra volume when I try “df -h .” - Do I need to restart the server to see the volume?
Also once the volume is visible - how do I set it up such that the new incoming files into the sftp are stored in the block storage?

Hello, @techsprintai

Did you added an entry to the /etc/fstab file as well, because if you reboot the server and there is no additional entry for the block storage the mount point will not be available.
