Can I change my Droplet's backup schedule and frequency?

When you enable backups for a Droplet, you can choose between daily and weekly backups.

You can also customize the backup window, which is a 4-hour window of time during which the Droplet automatically initiates a new backup. For weekly backups, this also lets you choose a day of the week for your backups.

As an alternative, you can also use SnapShooter to automate taking snapshots of Droplets. SnapShooter offers a customizable backup frequency and retention policy.

Convert your backups to snapshots to save them indefinitely.
You cannot currently download DigitalOcean backups or snapshots, but you can use third-party tools to save your data locally.
Creating a backup or snapshot takes roughly 2 minutes per GB of used space.
