Is it possible to shrink the size of a snapshot?
Before block storage became available in Frankfurt, I had to increase the droplet size, which I now would like to revert. I have already attached a block storage volume and moved the data there, and my “base” disk is now quite empty.
What I would like to do now is to take a snapshot of the droplet and use it to spin up a smaller droplet with just some more storage.
The problem is, I can’t happen to get that to work. Does anybody have some tips or ideas or has done that before?
