how much time to create a droplet from a snapshot image? I want to create a 2GB 40GB droplet from an old 1GB 20GB snapshot. The panel stuck on “Approximately 57 seconds remaining” since 60-70 minutes :) status says: “new”

@dnkalinin If it is taking an hour to create a droplet based on a snapshot, please open a support ticket so the team can take a closer look. It can take some time to convert the image to a larger format, but certainly not that long.

LOL, such slow time in 2015! very poor Support - by the time they reply ( after many hours) we have wasted our hourly billing for unused droplet run time

Worst thing is even destroy takes me >10 mins to and still waiting LOL

Okay, now I’m know it. it takes 3 hours 34 minutes 17 seconds to restore it.
