if your data is on an image (I assume that’s why you say “from an old droplet”) then the answer is no, you need to use the image to create a droplet, then move the data to the new server/droplet. rsync FTW!

While it might be possible to set up an NFS or SMB service and mount your disk or a portion of it remotely for the purpose you describe you may find it a lot easier to just use rsync.
