Can I add a volume snapshot to another region or transfer it to another region? I know I can do it with droplet snapshots, but what about volume snapshots? And if it’s not possible, can you add this feature?

Hey @urirodberg,

I just tested this and it does not seem to be possible as of the time being. A workaround that I would use in this case is to use a command like rsync for example, to transfer all of my files from an existing volume on one Droplet to volume on a different Droplet.

You can take a look at this tutorial on how to use the rsync command:

On another note, sounds like a great idea!

The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.

Hope that helps!

Rsync is a simple tool for intelligently syncing local and remote directories. In this article we will explore the basic usage of this utility to copy files from directory to directory and from system to system.
