Step 4:

 Choose the Volume Size

You can choose the volume size between 10-1024 GB. 

Whenever you want, you can use our resize volume feature to change the size of your volume, but the new volume size must be larger than the old one.

Step 5:

Select the target service where the volume will be attached(Optional)

It was an optional field, so you could configure it either during the volume creation process or after if you wanted to attach the volume to any service.

Selecting the active service from the same provider and region in these dropdowns will allow you to attach a service at the same time that you create a volume.
