Why can't I attach an existing volume to a new droplet?

When I try to create a new droplet, I’d like to attach a volume I’ve already created. I go to “add block storage” and then “attach existing”. I see the volume I’d like there, but it’s grayed out, and when I hover over it, it says “only 100 volumes can be attached at a time”. I don’t have anywhere near 100 volumes, just 1. How do I get this to work?

Hey @ejj,

In our public community, we aim to answer open questions about anything SysAdmin, DigitalOcean and beyond. However, we make every attempt to keep personal information safe and so don’t ever access personal account information here. This means we can’t provide help with any account or billing-related issues.

Please reach out to our amazing support team who will be more than happy to assist you with your account issue! :)

Hope that helps! - Matt.
