Hello, @migueldd2bd3e92

To use a backup as the base image for a new Droplet, from the control panel, click the name of the Droplet with the backup you want to use, then click Backups.

In the Droplet backups section, open the More menu of the backup you want to use and choose Create Droplet.

This brings you to the Droplet create screen with the image for that backup selected. Choose the rest of the Droplet options, then click Create.

You can follow our tutorial on how to restore a droplet from backups here:

If you’re still unable to select any region within the create droplet page, please reach out to our support team and they will assist you with this issue.
