i can't connect to the server when the disk is full

I’ve reset the server’s password. When I enter the password, I need to enter a new password. But I can’t save the password because the SSD is full. What should I do before growing an SSD?

In certain cases, a disk resize fails to resize the Droplet’s partition or filesystem.

In such cases, you need to follow the steps described in the documentation here:

In case that you still can not access the server, please reach out to our amazing support team who will be more than happy to assist you with your issue! :)

Hope that helps!

although I have upgraded the 25gb disk to 50gb, it still shows the disk size as 99.99% when I log in to the server and states that the disk size is 25gb. Since I have reset the password, I am asked to enter a new password. It cannot save the new password because there is no space left on the disk. So I can’t login to the server. I need immediate backup.
