I am struggling with this right now as well - my snapshot has been processing for 20 minutes now, much longer than usual, and my site is down. :( Is it possible the process is stuck?
mysnapshot taking too long , i only have about 3-4 GB of data inside.
it is 2 CPU/ 60 GB instance . why it takes so long?
i would create a new droplet and set it up from zero in this time. this is just insane. why can't i cancel it or anything.
I agree that inability to cancel the snapshot is absolutely insane. We have 480GB droplet, and snapshot progress bar is stuck at 50% instead of showing progress. Please fix this ASAP, it's crazy!
Me too. This thread is a bit worrying. I wasted most of today trying to get a droplet to talk to the outside world (was only accessible through the direct console on control panel) - in the end I had to give up and destroy it.
Now, after getting my droplet set up and everything working great, I thought I know, I'll park this work by making a snapshot so I don't lose it.
Wish I hadn't bothered - the progress bar quickly and smoothly went up to 50% and then just stuck there. Currently been waiting over an hour (60Gb droplet, approx 30% full).
I could have backed up a server this size with a USB stick by now!!!
