setting up transferred droplet - how to?

  • Posted June 15, 2014

I’ve transferred a droplet from a personal account to a work account - it seems to have gone smoothly as it disappeared from the first account and showed up* on the other - however, I couldn’t restore from it, and when I try to create a new droplet with it, I see it in the “My Images” section but it’s inaccessible and hovers with a circle with line though icon.

What gives?

You should contact support if its not letting you restore the droplet.
