Considerations before using SnapRestore

You must take into account certain considerations before deciding whether to use SnapRestore to revert a file or volume.

Attention: SnapRestore does not allow reversion to a Snapshot copy that was created prior to Data ONTAP 6.5. Though you can revert to a Snapshot copy from a previous Data ONTAP release later than Data ONTAP 6.5, this can cause problems because of potential version incompatibilities and can prevent the system from booting completely.
