I just upgrade my droplet to 2GB/50GB but the storage space in my droplet is still 15gb. Am I doing something wrong?

Hello! Check this guide for how to verify the resize: https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/droplets/how-to/resize/#verifying-disk-resizes

If you continue to experience issues, please open a support ticket so we can take a closer look. Be sure to include the Droplet name/IP and the output of the “df -h” command so we can review.

Hey, uf3899

Did you expand the filesystem?

For unpartitioned volumes using the ext4 filesystem, pass the /dev/disk/by-id volume identifier to resize2fs:

sudo resize2fs /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-0DO_example

The output will look like this:

resize2fs 1.42.13 (17-May-2015)
Filesystem at /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-0DO_example is mounted on /mnt/volume-example; on-line resizing required
old_desc_blocks = 25, new_desc_blocks = 32
The filesystem on /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-0DO_example is now 131072000 (4k) blocks long.

You can then Verify that the larger filesystem is available with df:

df -h -x tmpfs -x devtmpfs
