So I am Still looking for the answer. But unfortunately, I didn't found any way to do this.

Simply attaching a Volume in a droplet doesn't work.

I have created a 4 CPU droplet to test so its original disk size is 320 Gb.

and I have attached 2TB Volume to it

Device              Start           End                 Sectors            Size            Type

/dev/vda1      227328      335544286    335316959      159.9G      Linux filesystem
/dev/vda14    2048          10239              8192                 4M            BIOS boot
/dev/vda15    10240        227327             217088           106M        Microsoft basic data

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

NAME                FSTYPE           SIZE          MOUNTPOINT          LABEL
sda                                                   2T
vda                                                160G
├─vda1                  ext4              159.9G       /                                cloudimg-rootfs
├─vda14                                        4M
└─vda15 vfat                              106M        /boot/efi                       UEFI

 

So "sda" is a new attached volume

Ok, then what is "vda" its size is 160Gb. I think its an "Unallocated space" Which we can extend it via disk manager in windows

So what I understood is I need to find a way to extend the size of "vda" so anyone can help me with this?

Unfortunately I don't have any words of wisdom to share when it comes to mounting an additional add-on disk with DigitalOcean. It's on the list of things to figure out, but so far we don't have a solution at present.

When you install the template initially you will need to use Windows Disk Management to expand the "C:" partition to cover the entire allocated virtual disk.
