How to take snapshot of Spaces?

How to take snapshot of Spaces? There are options for Droplets and Volumes but I didn’t find any snapshot buttons for Spaces in Control Panel.
If I am not able to do it via control panel, Can I take snapshot via API.

Or are there any other options to take snapshot or backup DigitalOcean Spaces?

Snapshotting is used for backups and in the case of Droplets you can snapshot the local disk and the same for block storage.

Spaces is an object store so there is no internal snapshot mechanism. Because it is an object store the data is stored in a distributed manner and has levels of redundancy that is automatically built into spaces.

Because of that there is no “snapshotting” mechanism.
