I am trying to resize a droplet in SGP region to premium Intel but it says not available due to temporary sizing restriction. When we can expect the option to be available again?

Hi @nspeaks,

If you want to move to a different type of droplet, you can create a snapshot of your current droplet and then spin up a premium droplet using the snapshot.

To migrate a Droplet using snapshots, you should:

  1. Create a snapshot of a Droplet.

  2. Optionally, move the snapshot to a new region if you want to migrate your Droplet to a new region or transfer the snapshot to a new account) if you want to migrate your Droplet to a new account.

  3. Create a new Droplet from the snapshot in the desired region or from the desired account.

You can check the full process listed in our tutorial:
