How to Delete Snapshots

Snapshots are on-demand disk images of DigitalOcean Droplets and volumes saved to your account. Use them to create new Droplets and volumes with the same contents.

Snapshots remain in your account until you manually delete them. To delete a snapshot from your account, in the control panel, click Images in the main navigation, then click Snapshots to view all snapshots in your account.

Snapshots are separated into two lists: one for Droplet snapshots and one for volume snapshots. To remove a snapshot, open its More menu and click Delete. In the confirmation window that opens, click Delete Snapshot to permanently delete the snapshot.
