This guide explains how to resize the hard disk on a Vultr VPS. If you have recently upgraded your plan to a plan with a larger disk, then you can follow these steps to start using the extra space.
Linux: Our provided templates will update the disk size automatically after rebooting your VPS. If you deploy a server from a custom snapshot and the filesystem is not properly sized, correct the situation with the following steps:
If the filesystem needs to be expanded, run
resize2fs /dev/vda1 to resize the filesystem automatically to the size of the partition. Substitute vda1 with your device name.
Windows Server 2012/2016: By using a built-in utility called "Extend Volume Wizard".
Custom ISO: This will vary based on your operating system. You will likely need to add the space as a new partition. Ubuntu users can use the
cloud-init utility to help assist with disk resizing.
