post
https://api.linode.com/v4/linode/instances/{linodeId}/disks/{diskId}/resize

If you are resizing the Disk to a smaller size, it cannot be made smaller than what is required by the total size of the files current on the Disk. The Disk must not be in use. If the Disk is in use, the request will succeed but the resize will ultimately fail.
