You must create your snapshot schedule in the same region where your persistent disk resides.

To create a schedule for your snapshot:

  1. Go to the Snapshots page in the Google Cloud Platform Console.

  2. At the top of the page, click Create Snapshot Schedule.

  3. Enter a schedule Name.

  4. Select a Region for the snapshot schedule. Your persistent disks must reside in the zone(s) within the region that contains the snapshot schedule.

  5. Optionally, select your Snapshot location or accept the default selection.

  6. Select your Schedule frequency.

  7. Enter the number of days to Autodelete snapshots after.

  8. Select your Deletion rule to determine what happens to snapshots if the schedule's source disk is deleted.

  9. Choose the number of days to retain snapshots generated from this schedule.

  10. If you are using Windows, you can Enable VSS.

  11. Optionally, specify any relevant labels you want to apply to these snapshots.

  12. Click Create to create the snapshot schedule.
