Snapshots Details

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 provide a full copy of a DigitalOcean Droplet or volume. Creating a snapshot saves everything from the Droplet or volume’s disk to a disk image saved in your DigitalOcean account. They’re an easy way to archive a Droplet or volume at a point in time. We also back up snapshots offsite for additional resiliency.
Snapshots are charged at $0.06 GB per month for Droplets and $0.06 GiB per month for volumes.
Snapshots are available for all Droplets and block storage volumes across all regions.
