Hi All,

can you guys help me i’ve already add new volumes to my droplet and it like this

udev 978M 0 978M 0% /dev
tmpfs 199M 980K 198M 1% /run
/dev/vda1 49G 47G 1.4G 98% /
tmpfs 994M 0 994M 0% /dev/shm
tmpfs 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock
tmpfs 994M 0 994M 0% /sys/fs/cgroup
/dev/vda15 105M 6.6M 98M 7% /boot/efi
/dev/loop4 56M 56M 0 100% /snap/core18/2128
/dev/loop5 62M 62M 0 100% /snap/core20/1081
/dev/loop7 68M 68M 0 100% /snap/lxd/21545
/dev/loop3 62M 62M 0 100% /snap/core20/1169
/dev/loop8 33M 33M 0 100% /snap/snapd/13270
/dev/loop9 33M 33M 0 100% /snap/snapd/13640
/dev/loop6 68M 68M 0 100% /snap/lxd/21835
/dev/loop10 56M 56M 0 100% /snap/core18/2246
/dev/sda 50G 53M 47G 1% /mnt/volumesgp101
tmpfs 199M 0 199M 0% /run/user/0

as you can see that /dev/vda1 is almost full and i already add new volume /dev/sda on /mnt/volumesgp101

how can i resize /dev/vda1 from /mnt/volumesgp101?

Hey there!

A block storage volume adds an additional partition to your droplet but it doesn’t add disk space to the droplet’s main disk. To increase /dev/vda1 you would need to resize your droplet to a larger plan. With a block storage volume you would need to configure the software you are running to use the volume rather then the droplet’s disk space. The process for that varies based upon the software you are running.

Hope it helps!
