Volumes Backup

Hello, I have just connected a volume to my droplet. Is it possibile have a weekly backup in the same way of droplets? It seems that is possible just take a snapshot, but not an automatic weekly backup. Thanks

Hi @servicecrab,

DigitalOcean does not have an automated way to backup Volumes, unfortunately. Having said that I found the following Third Party Tool: Daily DigitalOcean Backups - SnapShooter

Hope this helps!

Hey @servicecrab,

Great idea, sounds like it’d be super useful!

It looks like someone has had the same idea before and has posted it on our Product Ideas board. The best thing to do would be to head over and add your vote to it, as well as adding any additional information in the comments for exactly what you’d like to see implemented!

In the meantime, you could use a service like SnapShooter.

Hope that helps!
