I suggest you ...

        Agree there must be a way for customer to decide when the window for a snapshot is over, since the machine is offline. Can't hold the domain hostage. Not sure if the progress bar is accurate either. Look forward to Singapore-like solution with online snapshots of a mirror. Thanks!

        I'd also like to be able to know more about what is happening when a snapshot is being created and cancel it if it's taking too long. Still waiting after 20 minutes.

        yes, I am also facing the same snapshot stuck problem. Please add the cancel option.

        snapshot is already running for 8 Min... knowing when it's going to end or being able to cancel it
        would help

        For example, I pressed to take a snapshot with the server off and it got held in the processing status....

        Creating a snapshot went from 3 minutes to....I have no idea as it is still running after 15 minutes. I only changed 3 config lines.....As the droplet is a very heavy used redirector, such long downtime is really bad. What makes it take this long?

        Glad I found out pre-production :)

        Just chiming in; definitely would love to see some sort of timer indicating how long the snapshot process is going to take with the option to cancel it.

        I came here as it was Processing... longer than a previous snapshot tool. I assume this is due to some queue on your backend. Maybe you could indicate to the user how big the queue is if this is the reason. I would rather know its being stalled because of your system load rather than what seems like an inconstant failure of some kind. Anyways, snapshots are a awesome feature :)
