Taking an RDS Database Snapshot creates a backup of your DB instance. A snapshot can be used to restore your database instance. You can have snapshots automated when you create an instance or you can create the snapshots manually. The steps below explain how to manually create a snapshot.
Note: The RDS instance Details tab will only be accessible if the RDS instance is in an 'available' state. Other ongoing actions may prevent the RDS instance from being fully accessible, so it may be necessary to wait until those actions have completed before proceeding.
