No way to reach combination of big-disk but smaller RAM/#CPU/cost?

Want 320GB disk, but less RAM/CPU/cost. Is there no manual process, using snapshots, rsync, etc. that can reach it? Size of existing disk always enforces a lower-bound on RAM/CPU, equivalent to new-droplet, no matter what?

Started with 20GB, snapshot it, destroy, use snapshot to create 320GB droplet, shutdown, and [fast] resize does not offer smaller RAM/CPU.

We do not currently offer custom droplet plans so at this time it is only possible to have 320GB of storage on a 32GB or larger droplet. The only suggestion I can offer would be to look into a third party storage solution or set up a distributed storage solution across multiple smaller droplets and mount that filesystem within your main one.
