Question

Resizing volume is not available even when the droplet is powered off

The “Resize volume” menu item is greyed out.

Even if I power off the droplet, it is still greyed out. I remember I did resize this volume a few months ago using these instructions https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-increase-the-size-of-a-digitalocean-block-storage-volume. Anything changed?

First: Shutdown your droplet! Then, click with right button in “Resize volume” and go to “Inspect element” (in Safari, or equivalent in other browsers)… remove ‘class=“is-disabled”’, and the button changes to “available”… click and choose your new size!

This is still an issue

Great solution!

I found that I can resize the volume by detaching it from the droplet, then go to the volumes tab and then you will see the resize active. Before detaching the volume, make sure you unmount it in the droplet to make sure you will not have any data corrupted.
