Is the advice to use snapshots to save money so as not to run too many droplets, not actually possible?
For example, I tried creating a droplet, then I made a snapshot, then I destroyed the droplet. then I tried to restore the snapshot, and it didn’t let me, it said “the resource you were accessing could not be found” digital ocean". So it seems that you need to have the droplet in order to restore a snapshot.
