  2. Stop the instance by selecting Actions > Instance State > Stop.
  3. Under the Description tab, click the root device name hyperlink (i.e. /dev/sda1) then click the EBS ID.
  4. Select the volume and select Actions > Create Snapshot.
  5. Type the name and description in the respective fields then click Create.

Snapshot creation will begin.
