I destroyed a droplet from 2 years ago, but have 2 snapshots saved. I need to access the data again and would like to restore the droplet. However when I go to my snapshots and try to restore the droplet it says “the resource you are accessing could not be found” and does not restore. How can I proceed to recover the data from these snapshots?

Thank you.
