Snapshot is taking too much time

Hi. When I started my snapshot process there was no info about any problems in cloud. It is processing too much and I guess there is no way to stop it and get my machine up and running again.

Doubt more than 4gb used, most of it is useless data i need to purge from a server move… .but so far 20 minutes, still going… Guess i really need to clean that out…

The best compromise would be to be able to stop the process if it takes too long.

I’m running a small website and do not have the time/resources to deploy several servers with load balancing. I take snapshots once a month on a droplet that has only 20GB (probably less than 1 GB used). During this time span, my app is down :/

Same thing here… how much is going to take this…
