I want to change my Amazon WorkSpaces WorkSpace volume size or compute type. How can I do this?

To change the WorkSpace volume size or compute type, see Modify a WorkSpace.

After you modify a WorkSpace using the WorkSpaces console, you receive the message "modification of your WorkSpace was successfully initiated". The WorkSpace reboots after you request the change. To verify that the volume size or compute type is changed, choose Refresh Data. Expect a delay of 10-15 minutes for a volume size change to become visible.

Note the following timelines and restrictions when changing the volume size or compute type:

  • You can request a WorkSpace bundle type increase once every 6 hours, or decrease once every 30 days.
  • You can request a volume increase once every 6 hours.
  • You can't decrease the size of root and user volumes after the WorkSpace is launched.
