Clone snapshot for transfers

Posted May 1, 2020 219 views

Is it possible to clone a snapshot to transfer? Sometime you want to share a snapshot with someone else (or many) and it’s horribly inefficient and time consuming to have to spin up a droplet from a snapshot, just to take ANOTHER snapshot to transfer out.

Seems like it would be REALLY simple for DO to create a clone snapshot tool for this purpose.

Would anyone else benefit from this?
