My Linode is Powered Off. Will it still be considered for billing?

Is there a way to download an image so that I can restore it later? Seems like a waste to destroy it completely…

Hey there,

You can download an entire disk from your Linode over SSH. We have a guide that walks you through the process:

That way you can save your data and have it available when you're ready to spin up a new Linode down the road and restore it.
