Create a snapshot

Creates a snapshot backup of a Linode.

Note. Backups are not encrypted even when they are taken from an encrypted disk. When a backup is restored, and if encryption is enabled, the data stored on the disk is encrypted again.

Important. If you already have a snapshot of this Linode, this is a destructive action. The previous snapshot will be deleted.
