Question

Unable to create droplet from snapshot in another region

I followed the guide below to create a snapshot in another region. However, when I try to create another droplet from the snapshot, the only region available is the current location. The region where I want to create a droplet from is grayed out and it says “Limited capacity”.

Is there a way I can track when capacity become available?

Hey there @cryptobunny, thanks for the question! If you’ve already added your Snapshot to other regions, you should see those “lit” and available to choose from. If you’re only interested in one specific region right now, there’s not a way to track capacity, but capacity changes very quickly. I would recommend checking on it a few times a day to see if you can deploy what you need.

Alternatively, if you open a Support ticket, the Support team can take a look at your image and at capacity and give you a better idea of what to expect.

I hope that helps!
