In DigitalOcean you can upgrade your Droplet anytime however lowering your Disk and Resources is not that straight forward. In such cases, you need to follow this tutorial to achieve it:
Basically, you’ll need to craete a new Droplet and migrate your Data over to the new one
You can always resize your droplet from the control panel and increase the resources if this is ever needed. The process is not the same when it comes to downsizing your droplet.
Data is not always sequentially written in memory, so reducing the available space would risk data loss and filesystem corruption. For more flexibility, you can use volumes for additional data storage, which lets you detach or delete the volume if you no longer need the space.
For data integrity reasons, we don’t provide the ability to downsize a Droplet through the control panel, but you can still switch to a smaller Droplet using common migration strategies.
You can check the following docs here:
Hope that this helps!
