I can't restore a snapshot from a different droplet

  • Posted May 1, 2014

I’m trying to create a copy of a droplet by restoring a snapshot to a different droplet, but no other droplet can see the snapshot. The new droplet is in NY and the snapshot was made in SF, but I transferred it and none of the other SF droplets can see it either.

The documentation says that there’s a way to make the snapshot “globally accessible”, but that option isn’t listed in the transfer dropdown, only the individual data centers.

What do I do???

Hi Paul, <br> <br>To restore a snapshot, you need to go to the “My Images” tab: <br> <br>
