Hello @NILESHKASLE1215

We do not have the ability to resize servers that have been created or resized to a bigger disk, since we are unable to shrink the disk allocation. There is no safe way to shrink a Droplet’s disk partitions, and this is a risky procedure to undertake on any Linux system.

However, we do have a great step-by-step tutorial that explains how you can effectively transfer your data to a new, smaller droplet:

If you would like a more thorough guide on transferring your data, we have a great tutorial series here:

Hope this helps!
