What happens with snapshots after deleting a droplet?

Hi, I would like to know if when I destroy a droplet, I can still have acess to it’s snapshots after. Currently I have two droplets spawned but I only need one, if I destroy the other one can I recover it from the snapshots in a month or so? Do the snapshots delete themselves after some period of time?

Thanks in advance,

Paulo

They exist till you manually delete each image. So yes, you can delete droplets and the image will still be there for you to restore it.
