Hi @BubblyAquaJellyfish,

Booting in recovery IS and chrooting into the environment shouldn’t lead to any data loss as you are not executing any actions that actually do that.

Booting the droplet via the recovery ISO and using chroot/shell environment will not result in data loss in itself. The system filesystem can be accessed like before once you boot the Droplet back using the hard disk.
