Hi @arnaldoaranda,

It is possible :)

Instead of destroying the droplets you will instead navigate to the destroy page in the control panel but use the rebuild option. The drop-down menu will display all disk images you have available (make sure the snapshot you have is available in all regions you’ll need it in from the Images page first). Select your snapshot from the dropdown and choose “Rebuild from Image”.

Your droplet will be rebuilt using your snapshot image, permanently destroying anything currently on the droplet, but keeping the IP address.
