It seems its taking well over 45 mins, still the snapshot is getting created… Its bit too longer for a production environment to stay offline…

How long does it take to create a snapshot ??

1GB droplet having around 12% of used disc ??

Server is offline for well over 45 mins as the snapshot keeps showing processing !!!

I dont even see any option to cancel the process and start the server :( any one knows how to stop the snapshot creation process so that the server can be taken back online ??

This is worrying, I started a snapshot of a 2.5TB drive. I guess I should come back here in a week…

I started looking for this answer after I started taking a snapshot which is a shame. 100g android build environment SGP1. 45 min so far. Cancel would be a really useful option.

Same in 2016… It’s still really slow…
