Hey @shaerif,

You can resize to any Droplet plan that has equal or more disk space as the original Droplet. That means you can increase or decrease the amount of CPU and RAM, change the type of CPU on a Basic Droplet (switch between Regular or Premium and between Intel Premium and AMD Premium), change between types of Droplets (like Basic, CPU-Optimized, and Storage-Optimized), and increase the amount of disk space.
