When your Cloud VPS is set up or upgraded with block storage, we automatically mount the new storage to '/data'. You can then begin using the volume immediately.

root:~# cd /data
root:/data# df -h .
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/xvdd 20G 17M 18G 1% /data

Please Note: If you have removed the Memset Admin Public SSH key from /root/.ssh/authorized_keys, we will be unable to mount your volume. You may still use it by mounting the block device /dev/xvdd manually;

mount /dev/xvdd /data

File System

By default, we create an ext4 filesystem for you. We recommend that you use ext4, however you may use a different filesystem if you wish, by unmounting and re-formatting the volume and then updating /etc/fstab.

Warning: This will destroy all your data on the block storage volume.
