Hello,

There is no charge for the operation itself. But there is a small fee for storing a snapshot. Snapshots are charged at $0.05 per GiB per month. Pricing is based on the size of the snapshot, not the size of the filesystem being saved. For more information you can visit the official documentation here:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
