Hi there,

Once you attach the volume to your Droplet you would also need to mount it to a specific directory, you can follow the steps on how to do that here:

However note that this will be a separate disk rather than a merge between the two. So what you could do is to create a standard Droplet and then attach a 200GB volume and mount it to a specific directory.

Hope that this helps!
