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.
Creating a snapshot of a Droplet does not capture volumes attached to the Droplet. You can create snapshots of volumes separately.
Snapshots of volumes cannot be moved between regions or transferred to different DigitalOcean accounts.
You can store up to 25 snapshots of a given volume. Delete old snapshots to make room for new ones.
Snapshots are not incremental. Each snapshot is a full disk image.
For each volume, you can create up to one snapshot every 10 minutes.
