Can I attach a volume to multiple Droplets?

You can only attach a volume to one Droplet at a time. This is because Droplets recognize volumes and block storage as locally-attached drives.

As a workaround, you can mount a remote directory on a Droplet with the volume attached. We recommend using SSHFS or NFS.

Adding a volume to your Droplet doesn’t increase its main disk size. You need to resize the Droplet to increase its main disk size.
You cannot currently download DigitalOcean backups or snapshots, but you can use third-party tools to save your data locally.
