DO Ideas 2

Clarify the difference, if any, between "backup" and "snapshot" on the "destroy" page.

On the destroy page you say "This is irreversible. We will destroy your droplet and all associated backups."

Is that "backup" the same as a "snapshot"?

Use exactly ONE term ALL the time or you are just confusing people.

    Hi Patrick, Backups and snapshots are different which is why there are two different terms. Backups are automatically taken and have a relationship to the droplet they were taken from. This is why when you destroy a droplet it's associated backups will be destroyed as well. Snapshots once created are not destroyed unless the user themselves selects to destroy them. This is why the terminology is different. Thanks, Moisey
