The snapshot will be moved away to the backend snapshot store in the background, You can track it's progress by clicking on Refresh

Once the snapshot is built, you will be presented with a UUID (Universally unique identifier), File Size and Timestamp of Snapshot build.

The snapshot size should more or less be the same size as the VPS itself. If you feel that the size is too small compared to the data on the VPS, please feel free to contact our Support to investigate further, in many cases if there's temporary data written out to /tmp it can be a cause for this smaller sized snapshot as well.
