Is it safe to use an EBS volumne while a snapshot is being created?
I've currently got a 100Gb EBS volume mounted. I am in the process of snapshotting it. Goodness it's slow!! It's going to end up taking more than 45 minutes to snapshot.
My question : Is the EBS volume already copied and just being saved somewhere? Or, is the snapshot actively copying from my mounted volume right now?
Basically, if I start using it before the snapshot completes, am I hosed?
I just can't believe it takes this long to copy. There really isn't even 100GB in use. It's more like 25Gb.
