Question

Can I Copy a Droplet From One Project to Another?

I have a droplet in my account A for development purposes and I would like to copy it to another droplet for production purposes (account B). The droplets should be in different accounts.

1)How can I copy the droplet into a different project (from a different account) without losing any data? 2)How can I restore the droplet from a Snapshot into a different project (from a different account)?

Hello, @liberalmeida

You can transfer Droplet snapshots to another DigitalOcean user or to any DigitalOcean team that your account is a member of. Transferring snapshots lets you effectively migrate a Droplet from one account or team to another.
