Snapshot backup failed on Linode...

Trying to create a snapshot, something I do whenever I think I might break something badly (like, when using dd). Usually just works. Last one was about a week ago. Today, it just keeps failing.


Edited to correct typo: brake/break

Automatic scheduled backups are also failing.

Not sure if it was there the whole time or just appeared… but this message exists: "The Backup Service for this Linode is currently undergoing maintenance."

Sure would like to know how long the maintenance will take…

I'm having the same issue. Backup is failing. This is frustrating, @bscwebmaster did you manage to resolve this?

Nevermind, there was an auto backup in the background
