Create droplet from backup in different region

  • Posted May 5, 2014

I’m trying to create a droplet from a backup, and I can see my list of backups. However, if I select a different region for the new droplet than the region where the backup is stored, I can no longer select the backup.

Is it possible (or will it soon be possible) to create a droplet from a backup stored in a different region?

@Joel: <br> <br>In the “Images” menu, click on the icon to the right of your backup: <br> <br>http://i.imgur.com/r9dKhee.png <br> <br>Now the backup is available as a snapshot. Now click the globe icon for the snapshot to select a region to transfer it too: <br> <br>http://i.imgur.com/re5m9vT.png

Thanks! How do I: <br> <br>- convert the backup to a snapshot? <br>- distribute it to the other regions?

You can convert the backup to a snapshot and distribute it to the other regions for deployment that way.
