I no longer see the RDS backup options

I'm getting an error message

Subject: RDS snapshot and prune failed
Scheduled creation of snapshot from db [ns-release] in [Virginia] failed - DBInstance not found: ns-release

But that particular db is no longer active. How do I turn off the scheduler for the backup?

There used to be a menu dropdown that got me to a page of our scheduled snapshots but that doesn't seem to exist any longer. Just looking for a way to remove the entry from the scheduler so we don't get error messages every day on a non-existent rds instance.

    Sorry, could you please clarify? The rds snapshot task is displayed on the tasks page and you can just remove that task. Is that what you are looking for?

    That was it, needed to find the tasks link. I looked all over the place for it several times. Anyway, just found the slider window on the left today and that solves the issue. Apparently I had been there previously but in the past couple of passes, couldn't find it.
