Question

What to do when the SSD 25 GB is full and we cannot add even single file?

I have a droplet with 25 GB SSD and Docker running on it. My droplet memory is 100% utilized and now I cannot write even one file.

I have attached an external volume of 100GB and mounted it in the droplet. But now I am clueless about how to enable it in my docker and the application running on it.

Please help.

Hello, @sagarsprone

You can examine the disk space usage and delete any data which is not crucial to your application or website. What is the output of the following command:

  1. df -h

Also, I could suggest following the steps from this answer here on how to find the folders that are using the most disk space:

The other option will be to resize the droplet. You can check this article on how to resize your droplet:
