Discarding Sandbox copy before Activation

Knowledge Article Number 000038146
Description If I choose the Discard option for my new Sandbox copy before it is activated, can I create a new copy immediately?
Resolution After a sandbox is discarded, you will need to wait the regular interval for the sandbox license type, before a refresh will be available again.

When you create or refresh a sandbox, the "copied on" date for that sandbox is updated. This date is retained, even if the new copy is discarded before activation. 

NOTE: For more information on sandbox refresh interval times, please see Understanding Sandbox Environment Types.
