How-to | Configure automatic snapshots of the data disk#

When deprovisioning or reprovisioning an instance, Fleet Manager creates a snapshot of the data disk to retain it.

You can also configure Fleet Manager to automatically take snapshots of the data disk, including the time interval and the number of snapshots to retain. To do this:

  1. From the instance dashboard, navigate to the Settings tab, then scroll to the Snapshots section.

  2. Toggle Automated snapshots to On.

  3. Set the Frequency in hours.

  4. Set the Number of snapshots to retain.

These snapshots will appear in the Snapshots tab, and you can revert to them just by clicking on one of the snapshots and confirming

If you do not want Fleet Manager to retain any snapshots, switch off the Automated snapshots toggle.
