ec2 Standard Reserved instance: Can you increase the EBS size from the original size when the instance was created?


If I have a Standard Reserved ec2 instance and the only thing I want to do is increase the EBS SSD size to a larger size than when I created the instance, can this be done? i.e. if I increase the EBS from 160GB to a higher EBS size, or change from using gp2 to using gp3, can this be done with a Standard Reserved instance? I would not be changing the instance size or type. Or would I need to have a Convertible Reserved instance to be able to change the EBS size? Nothing else would be changing.

AFAIK modification to volume size or volume type should not be an issue. Reserved instances are only for compute power ie. instance type irrespective of volume
