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.
Daily image backups are now available in NYC1 and AMS3.
Backups now remain available for four weeks even if the associated Droplet is deleted. Previously, deleting a Droplet would also delete its backups.
For more information, see all Backups release notes.
