Need my SSH key to upload files using Transmit to my droplet

I have a new laptop now and I don’t have access to the SSH key that I generated when I created the droplet for my website. Now, I have updated my website and I need to upload the updated files by connecting via SFTP using Transmit to my droplet, but I can’t connect because I do not have the key on my new laptop. Can anyone help me? THanks

Once you’ve uploaded the new SSH key, you will be able to connect to the Droplet as normal.
