Hey @hquery

So block storage is like a mounted hard drive on a single droplet. So you can use it like a normal disk on a server and copy data for a backup. The point about the single server is key. You can’t access that data unless it’s mounted to a single server.

With spaces you need connect over http the s3 cli client is the best, or rclone. You can move files in and out. You can access the file from anywhere online (with the authentication keys)
