How to make backups happen?

  • Posted March 6, 2014

I have two active droplets. When I go to the “Images” page it says “You have no backups currently”. The Technical FAQ says automated backups runs every couple of days."

How do I enable backups?

Backups can only be enabled when creating the droplet. You could snapshot the droplet, destroy, then recreate from that snapshot with backups enabled and then the backups with happen automatically every few days.
