You might have to restore a file from the Snapshot copy of a FlexVol volume if the file was accidentally erased or corrupted. You can use the SnapRestore feature to automatically restore files from the Snapshot copy of a FlexVol volume.
- If the original file still exists and you do not want it overwritten by the file in a Snapshot copy, then use your UNIX or Windows client to rename the original file or move it to a different directory.
- Locate the Snapshot copy that contains the version of the file that you want to restore.
- Copy the file from the .snapshot directory to the directory in which the file originally existed.
