Retrieve data on a snap shot

  • Posted October 12, 2014

I have an old snap shot that has configuration files I would like to look at. I do NOT want to destroy or mess with the droplet that the snapshot was made from. My working site. How do I make a droplet from this snapshot (so I can access it) so its DNS settings wont clash with my main droplet?

You can create a new droplet based on the snapshot that you took without affecting the original droplet at all. Once you get to the Select Image section of the Create Droplet page, click on the My Images tab and then select your snapshot.
