How To Restore from a SnapShot (My personal experience)
For me restoring my snapshot was not intuitive and I did not find a step by step procedure, so I am writing this in the hope that it may help someone else.
The name of the droplet should be the same as the original one.
Size can be changed.
Region can be changed.
Modify as needed.
Click “My Snapshots” and select the snapshot to restore.
Add SSH Keys
If the original droplet had an SSH Key then you need to select the same SSH-Key upon creation. The reason is that Putty on your desktop has the original corresponding Private Key.
You may get lucky and be assigned the same IP Address, if not you will have to change it where appropriate (Putty, DNS etc…)
Happy Coding :)
