Why can't I create a Droplet from a snapshot?

You cannot create Droplets in certain datacenters due to limited capacity. If your snapshot is in a limited capacity datacenter, you can’t create a Droplet from that snapshot.

If you have a snapshot in a datacenter where Droplet creation is not available, transfer the snapshot to another datacenter. You can then create a new Droplet from that snapshot in the new datacenter.

You can see where Droplets are available on the Droplet availability page.

You cannot change the frequency of Droplet backups, but you can use SnapShooter or the API to create daily snapshots of your Droplets.
You cannot undo restoring a Droplet from a backup, but you can use an existing snapshot to restore a Droplet to a previous point in time.
Take a snapshot of your Droplet and then create new Droplet from the snapsnot in the new datacenter.
