How to auto scale only volume of instance?



I have an instance need to auto scale only volume not instance type.

Is it possible to auto scale only volume of instance?

That's not really possible - mainly because operating systems don't generally "like" storage changing size around them. In general, you can expand a volume but you can't shrink it - file systems generally allocate space and taking it away isn't a good idea.

If you need a file system that expands/shrinks as you use it you might consider FSx or EFS.
