Block Storage

I've done a bit of searching but cant seem to find an answer.

can you have a Droplet with attached block storage and move the block storage to another region from within the DO console?

Currently, you can't change the region. You'd need to setup a new block storage device and transfer the files over using scp or your preferred method.

Is it planned to move volume snapshots in the future?
