The size of a Linode Compute Instance’s disk can be increased or decreased as needed. When resizing, it’s important to keep the following restrictions in mind:
- The maximum size of a disk is equal to the current size of the disk and the remaining unallocated storage space on the Linode. The maximum size is displayed underneath the Size field when resizing the disk.
- The minimum size of a disk is equal to the current disk usage within the filesystem. This number is not displayed in the Cloud Manager. To determine how much space the files on the disk are using, run the command
df -hwithin the Linode’s command Line (through SSH or Lish).
- Raw disks can only be resized to a larger disk.
- Disks with custom partitions cannot be resized.
The following instructions cover how to resize a disk. For instructions regarding resizing a Linode Compute Instance’s plan (including downgrading to a smaller plan), see the Resizing a Linode guide.
Click the Power Off button in the upper right of the page or within the ellipsis menu. Before proceeding, wait until the Linode has been fully powered off.
On the Linode’s dashboard page, navigate to the Storage tab.
Within the Disks table, locate the disk you wish to resize and click the corresponding Resize button, which may also appear within the ellipsis menu.
The Resize Disk form is displayed. In the Size field, enter the new size for the disk in megabytes. The new size of the disk needs to be within the maximum and minimize disk size discussed above.
Click Resize. The progress can be monitored from the corresponding entry for the disk within the Disks table on the Linode’s Storage page.
Once the disk has been successfully resized, click the Power On button to boot up the Linode.
