how can I use a snapshot/image from one droplet, to build another droplet

December 31, 2014 2k views

I shutdown droplet 1 & took and image
I shutdown droplet 2 and cannot find an option to replace it with the snapshot from droplet 1
They are the same size (ram & drive). Can this really be a non-standard request?
Thanks for any tips.

You will need to destroy droplet 2 if you don’t need anything on it. Otherwise create droplet 3.

Then create new droplet using the snapshot you created with droplet 1.

The snapshots section is under “Select image” about 3rd of way down the droplet creating page.
