Where to find Volume Block Storage snapshot

I am trying to create a Volume snapshot. The snapshot was created successfully but I cannot find where the snapshot is. I tried looking for it under Manage > Volumes Block Storage or under Manage > Images but they are not there. I expect that there should be at least a list that shows the Volume snapshots I made.

Hi there,

To access your block storage snapshots you need to:

  • Go to the DigitalOcean Control Panel
  • Click on ‘Images’ from the menu on the right
  • Then under the ‘Snapshots’ tab scroll just a bit further down
  • And there click on the ‘Volumes’ tab:

Hope that this helps!
