Hello,

I would like to destroy a droplet but I need to keep the snapshot I have created.
How can that be done?

Thanks

Destroying a droplet does not delete the snapshots.

This doesn't seem true anymore: Just deleted a droplet, and it seems the snapshot is also gone...

  • Just go to the Images tab. You'll see snapshots and backups there.

    • Now there is a now question - how to delete a snapshot of already destroyed droplet? There is no "delete" button on Images/Snapshots/Droplets screen.
