Backup How-Tos

Backups are automatically-created disk images of Droplets. Enabling backups for Droplets enables system-level backups at weekly intervals, which provides a way to revert to an older state or create new Droplets.

Getting Started

Enable backups for a Droplet for automatic, system-level backups at weekly intervals.
Create a new Droplet from a backup or restore an Droplet to an older point in time.
Convert a backup to a snapshot to store the image indefinitely in your DigitalOcean account.
Disable backups on a Droplet to stop automatic backups and delete all existing backup images for that Droplet.
