Make sure you have backed up the VS before resizing disks.

Primary and Swap disks

For primary and swap (Linux, FreeBSD) disks you may only change the label and the size.
You can easily resize disks when needed. The resize will fail if your current usage is greater than the new size you request. Note, that any changes on disk size will lead to reboot of your VS.

To change disk size:

  1. Go to your Control Panel's Virtual Servers menu.
  2. Make sure your virtual server is powered off, then click its label to open its details screen.
  3. Click the Storage tab -> Disks.
  4. Click the Actions button next to the disk you want to change, then click the Edit link.
  5. Enter a new disk label and size in GB in the fields provided.
  6. Click the Save Disk button. 
  • You cannot decrease size of Integrated Storage data store disks.
  • You cannot decrease disk size for Windows-based and FreeBSD-based virtual servers. Only the increase disk size option is available. 
  • You cannot resize the primary disk for FreeBSD-based virtual servers. 
  • Decreasing disk size for Linux-based virtual servers may lead to filesystem inconsistencies. Make sure you have current backups before proceeding.

For new disks - those which were added after the virtual server was created - you can edit the following:
