Restoring files from the Snapshot copy of a FlexVol volume

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.

Steps

  1. 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.
  2. Locate the Snapshot copy that contains the version of the file that you want to restore.
  3. Copy the file from the .snapshot directory to the directory in which the file originally existed.
