Hi @afumagic3,

Destroying a droplet does not remove it’s snapshots unless specifically set to. Basically, you can delete your droplet without any worries of your snapshots disappearing.

Having said that, please note that after you delete the droplet, the only way to get to the snapshot would be from the Images tab on your left side of the screen.

    This is for disabling Backups:
