Launch an additional droplet off of a backup
I’m using a droplet on production (“prod”) for which I have backups enabled. I have a backup of “prod” from yesterday, and I’d like to launch an additional development droplet (“dev”) from it.
How can I do this, while preserving “prod” as it is? I don’t want “dev” to interfere with anything that “prod” has.
Should I “convert [the backup] to snapshot” and then launch a droplet from that? If so, how?
