Creating a Manual Backup

Scenarios

RDS allows you to create manual backups of a running primary DB instance. You can use these backups to restore data.

When you delete a DB instance, its automated backups are also deleted but its manual backups are retained.

You can create manual backups only when your account balance is more than $0 USD.

Billing

Backups are saved as packages in OBS buckets. For the billing details, see How Is RDS for MySQL Backup Data Charged?
