    Repossession

    The following instructions are only applicable to elastic cloud disks. The lifecycle of non-elastic cloud disks is the same as the associated CVMs. For more information, see Payment Overdue.

    • 7 days before the resources expiration date, you will receive an expiration alert and a renewal reminder.
    • If your account balance is sufficient and auto-renewal is enabled, cloud disk will be auto-renewed on the expiry date.
    • If your cloud disk is not renewed before expiration (including on the expiry date), it can still be used for 7 days after the expiry date. If your cloud disk is not renewed within 7 days after it expires, it will be forcibly unmounted from a CVM (if any) and its services will be suspended (the cloud disk is unavailable and can only store data). The disk will enter the recycle bin, where you can still restore and renew it. However, the billing cycle of the renewed cloud disk starts on the end date of the previous billing cycle.
    • If your cloud disk is not renewed within 7 days after it enters the recycle bin, resources will be released and data in the expired cloud disk will be erased and cannot be recovered.

    Snapshot Overdue Policy

    Freezing

    Once your Tencent Cloud account becomes overdue, snapshots will go into the Isolated status. The snapshot-related operations are not allowed, including the snapshot creation, rollback, cross-region replication, scheduled snapshot policies, etc.

    • The isolated snapshots will be retained for 30 days. If your account balance remains negative, all snapshots (except for image snapshots) will be deleted after this period.

    Notes

    • Even after your account becomes overdue, the snapshot storage size exceeding the free tier will still be billed until being deleted.
    • Once snapshots are terminated, the data cannot be restored.
    • Once the overdue payment is paid, snapshot operations are automatically resumed.
    • Image snapshots are retained permanently unless deleted.
    • If you no longer need a snapshot, delete it to avoid fee deduction. For more information, see Deleting Snapshots.
