Downsize

Please stop declining this idea, is the most requested feature amongst the DO community, stop blocking people from downsizing their droplets, it's very non eco friendly to waste resources for no reason and you're helping exactly with that. I have several droplets which I cannot downsize because it is a pure pain configuring everything and rsync won't cut it. Don't be evil, listen to your users.

    Hi Vlad, I completely understand the frustration you are feeling by not being able to simply downsize a Droplet. It is something we do hope to address in the future, as you are right it is a very frequently requested feature. However, as of right now we are not able to downsize the Droplet's disk due to the possibility of corrupting the EXT4 filesystem. As we evaluate future storage architectures this is certainly something we will keep in mind. Thank you for taking the time to leave the feedback.
