@hypertextsol: No, a snapshot is a complete clone of your droplet. Fast-Resize changes bandwidth as well.

@kamal What about the data files + mysql data, password, ssl and other stuff — does that all needs to be changed after rebuilding the droplets from the snapshot? <br> <br>Does the Fast Resize only changes RAM + CORES ? what about Bandwidth ?

Sweet! :]
