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!
