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?

This still doesn’t seem to be fixed.
