Creation of Snapshot copy schedules

Data ONTAP provides a default Snapshot copy schedule for each FlexVol volume and Infinite Volume. You can create schedules to fit your needs if the default Snapshot copy schedule is not adequate.

For FlexVol volumes, the default Snapshot copy schedule automatically creates one daily Snapshot copy Monday through Saturday at midnight, an hourly Snapshot copy five minutes past the hour, every hour, and a weekly Snapshot copy. Data ONTAP retains the two most recent nightly Snapshot copies and the six most recent hourly Snapshot copies, and deletes the oldest nightly and hourly Snapshot copies when new Snapshot copies are created.
