What mean Restore from Snapshot?


Hi, I asked this to the scaleway support :


Hi, my webserveur is down. Debian broken. I would like restore previous state of my iserver. Do I need to create a new server for that ? What is the process please.


The answer was :


There is no backup on our side, if you do not have backup on your side, there is no other way to recover your data from the previous state.
Thanks a lot


So, what is a snapshot ?

You can also use the backup feature to backup all data of your server:

If you have a Snapshot of your volume, you can use it to start a new server from that snapshot and assign your flexible reserved IP to the new one:
