Question

Cannot resize from snapshot

Hi,

I am trying to upgrade my server to 40gig storage. I took a snapshot as defined here:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-resize-droplets-using-snapshots

And created a new droplet. But when I try to restore from the snapshot of my 1st droplet, I cannot access the backup image. What I get is: Currently you do not have any snapshots for this droplet to restore from.

How do I cross-access the snapshots?

Unfortunately we cannot resize the droplet for you. You can take a snapshot and keep the droplet running while you migrate the snapshot and deploy the droplet in a different datacenter.

is it possible for DigitalOcean staff to resize the droplet if I accept the downtime? instead of this snapshot transfer method… I have a 15gig site which may take too long to distribute to global network. Btw, both my droplets are in AMS2 datacenter, would it make this faster?

I guess it’s the globe icon which says distribute to all regions. I clicked that. Now it says Initiated an image region transfer for the image. I guess it will be ok soon. Thank you
