I just disabled backups by mistake, how do I re-enable them?

I have a droplet with backups configured. I just clicked a button called “Disable Backups” by mistake, and want to re-enable them, but there is no such option. How do I do this?

Is there any option added now? Can I re-enabled backups if I disabled them through the dashboard?

Unfortunately, there is not currently a way to enable backups on an already running droplet, even if it previously had backups enabled. You could recreate it from a snapshot and enable backups when doing so.
