Assume I have a droplet and I want to backup more often than weekly so I write my own snapshot schedule to create a snapshot every day. Will each day’s snapshot cost me the same or will they be snapshot deltas so each could be different sizes (and smaller than the original)? Are subsequent snapshots completed faster than the first snapshot of a droplet?

Good question! Each snapshot stands completely on it’s own and is a full snapshot. Internal droplet variables will have them varying in size slightly (log rotation, added content, etc), but if you don’t change much on a regular basis then each one would generally be roughly the same size. Deleting any old one would have no impact on any new one, or vice versa.
