Ubuntu Space Full but expanding droplet is not increasing partition size / ODOO erp crashed


Using Ubuntu 22.04.01 LTS Droplet All of a sudden my droplet crashed and i found our my space was full

Filesystem Type Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on tmpfs tmpfs 198M 25M 174M 13% /run /dev/vda1 ext4 9.6G 9.6G 0 100% / tmpfs tmpfs 988M 0 988M 0% /dev/shm tmpfs tmpfs 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock /dev/vda15 vfat 105M 6.1M 99M 6% /boot/efi

I increased my droplet size to 50gs and it still has not increased my /vda1 size

I am a rookie and I do not know how to do this. Please someone help. I need my ODOO service started or if not atleast get a backup of Database which runs on PostgreSQL.

Ubuntu command wont let me do any additions / installs as ofcourse due to lack of space.

I have tried to find any oversize files but there seems to be none. It seems the database might itself be the cause.

Regards, Mitul
