Question

Can you UNDO a restored snapshot? Please Help!

Posted January 14, 2015 2.9k views

Hello. I made a huge mistake this morning and thought I needed to go back to a restore point (snapshot) on my droplet. Turns out, there were really important things that had been uploaded/changed/etc AFTER the snapshot was made. Things that are more important than the reason for doing the restore in the first place. Doh!

I am in dire straights (not the band, that’d be weird) and am praying that there is some way to UNDO a restore, without a more recent snapshot. Is there any way??

Unless you took a snapshot of your droplet before the restore, I don’t see how that could be possible.

However, deleted droplets are saved for a little bit, so if you deleted your droplet and restored a new one, the image for the deleted one could be there.

If you reimaged an existing droplet, I suspect your data is lost.

sad to report it appears you will be unable to restore, as you currently only have that one snapshot on your account
