Note
Snapshots taken of a Cloud Server will only include data stored on the server's local disk (ie C:\ or /dev/xvda). Additional data from Block Storage volume's which are attached to the Cloud Server will not be included in the Snapshot as each volume must instead have it's own individual Snapshot taken.
