Restoring a volume from a Snapshot copy

You can use System Manager to restore a volume to a state recorded in a previously created Snapshot copy to retrieve lost information. When you restore a Snapshot copy, the restore operation overwrites the existing volume configuration. Any changes made to the data in the volume after the Snapshot copy was made are lost.
