Recovering from disk failure

The Volumes · Fly Docs) documentation indicates that daily snapshots of volumes are taken. If there is a disk failure, what is the recovery process? Is the latest snapshot automatically mounted or does the user have to fix it manually?

Additionally, are there any alerts if a disk failure occurred? I don’t see anything in the Volumes section of the dashboard that might tell me if a disk failure had happened.

If, for some reason, the app instance (VM) hasn’t been auto-migrated (happens rarely), you’ve got 5 days to restore the snapshot yourself, from what I know. Ref this thread: Can't load site anymore - #2 by jerome

Don’t use volumes on Fly, so I can’t say for sure, but I agree there must be alerts for bogon hosts and lemon disks, if there aren’t already.
