I've forgotten the password, if I reset it....

I’ve forgotten the password for my droplet. If I reset it via the dashboard, will the droplet be re-created? I don’t want to re-create it.

No, your Droplet will not be recreated. However, it will be powered off and then rebooted in order to modify /etc/passwd and apply the new root password.
