In my droplet d1 in DigitalOcean ,i take a snapshot named s1,and then destroy the droplet d1,re-create a droplet d2,there is the s1 in the panel images–sanpshot .

When i want to restore from the snapshot , to enter into droplet d2 and select sanpshot to restore , the message in the screen: Currently you do not have any snapshots for this droplet to restore from.

Can i restore droplet from snapshot d1 ?
