How about a snapshot cancel button?

  • Posted July 7, 2013

I’ve been waiting sometime for a snapshot to complete (thanks for the fast ticket response DO) and the thought occurred that an option to cancel a ‘Processing’ snapshot would be very useful. Not only would this allow customers to bring their server back up when that much downtime is not acceptable, but it would free up the scheduler and help alleviate the problem too. Until live snapshots are implemented this would be a very useful feature!

Mine has been running for 5 hours - no response from DO support. Worst downtime for 5 years, and I have only been with DO for 24 hours.


I just found the feedback area and realised this wasn’t really the right place to suggest this, plus it has already been suggested, but it doesn’t have many votes! So discus if you wish and throw some votes here is you agree :)
