How long will my backup or snapshot take to complete?

Validated on 6 May 2020 • Posted on 6 May 2020

Creating a snapshot or backup takes about 1 to 3 minutes per GB of used disk space on the Droplet, so a Droplet with 10 GB of used disk space would take 10 to 30 minutes. This time can vary depending on factors like current disk activity and load levels on the Droplet or hypervisor.
