Restore a backup or snapshot into a docker container

Would it be possible to take a backup of a droplet and then restore it into a docker container of another droplet? I assume not, but wow would that rock.

Unfortunately that is not possible as we do not support downloading/exporting images.
You can however restore the backup, power on the droplet, download the contents, and then upload it to another droplet.


Try the helicopterizer for Backup and Restore for Docker Container in the Cloud Providers.

help us with your code, make a PR. :)
