More storage space


I have 50 GB space on I would like to add 10 GB. I do not need/want extra ram or cpu. The server is only used as online storage and there will be no extra traffic or usage. How can this be done.

Kind regards

Hello @flanderswebhost

Another solution will be if you’re using DigtialOcean Spaces. You can mount the Space object on your droplet and then use it to store data instead of upgrading your whole droplet when all you need is additional storage.

You can check this question and the answer provided for mounting a Space to a droplet in order to use it as an additional space.

Hope that this helps!

Hi there,

An alternative option to upgrading the server itself, would be to add a block storage to your server and mount it to a specific directory where you could store the extra files.

You can follow the steps on how to do that here:
