Do NOT follow these instructions. They are OUT OF DATE.

I followed these directions and created new new droplet for which DigitalOcean is going to charge me.

To restore a backup, click on your Droplet, go to “Backups”. Find the backup date you want to restore, click on “More” then “Restore Backup”.

Follow the steps outlined in <a href=“https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-create-your-first-digitalocean-droplet-virtual-server”>How To Create Your First DigitalOcean Droplet Virtual Server</a>; but, in <b>Step Five</b>, select the Backup image you’d like.
