It might take a while for the transfer to start. My snapshot is in the process of transferring right now but I initiated the transfer nearly three hours ago.

Wait for the globe icon on the Images page of the Control Panel to turn blue and then mouse click on the icon. I see the word “transferring”. When the snapshot has transferred you’ll see the word “transferred”.

Be patient. I’m sure there’s a lot of data being transferred to London at the moment.

Alright, thx for answer.

So now turned blue icon “Snapshot is backed on amazon glacier”. I guess its on good way? And it will transefered soon ?

    With the London datacenter opening today, there is a backlog of image transfers. Though if it is taking an extremely long time, you can always[ open a support ticket ](“https://cloud.digitalocean.com/support”) so the team can look into your specific circumstances.
