You cannot edit a snapshot schedule. 

To change a schedule that is already attached to a disk, you must first detach the schedule from the disk and delete it. Then you can create a new schedule, and attach it to the disk. 

Snapshots that are generated from the detached snapshot schedule will not be managed by the new policy. Those snapshots will be retained indefinitely until you delete them.

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

  2. Select the disk that has the schedule you want to detach.

  3. Click Edit at the top of the page.

  4. Open the Snapshot schedule drop-down menu.

  5. Click No schedule to detach the schedule from the disk.

  6. You can create a new schedule, or swap the schedule while you are editing the disk options.

  7. Click Save to complete the task.
