Access backup from different regions.

It will be very useful to move service to another region in case of emergency

    You can now convert a backup into a snapshot. After it is a snapshot you can transfer it to any region you like and it will no longer auto-expire. To do this just goto the images tab: https://cloud.digitalocean.com/images Click on the droplet where you have backups enabled and you will see a dropdown list of backups that were taken. On the right will be an icon that will show a tooltip that it converts the backup to a snapshot. Just click that and it will appear in your snapshots tab and you can then transfer it to any region from there. Thanks, Moisey
