What exactly does "Upgrade Image" do?

What exactly does "Upgrade Image" do? I can't find any reference to it in FAQs or help, or google searches. I'm assuming it updates the image to coincide with the current state of the droplet, but one would think that would be called "Update Image", so I'm not sure.

Hi!

The "Upgrade Image" button actually just upgrades the image format from QCOW to RAW. There is no immediate benefit, and certainly no drawback to doing this now. It relates to some upcoming code changes in our backend. Stay tuned for announcements on that front!
