The best way to find all versions of a particular file preserved in Snapshot copies is to use the ls command from an NFS client.
Client must be connected to NFS to access the Snapshot copies.
ls -l myfile.txt .snapshot/*/myfile.txt -rw-r--r-- 1 smith 0 Jan 14 09:40 myfile.txt -rw-r--r-- 1 smith 0 Jan 13 18:39 .snapshot/nightly.0/myfile.txt -rw-r--r-- 1 smith 0 Jan 12 19:17 .snapshot/nightly.1/myfile.txtThe version of myfile.txt in the active file system was last modified on January 14, but the old versions available in the Snapshot copies were modified on January 13 and January 12. You can use standard UNIX commands to read the earlier versions of myfile.txt. However, you cannot modify or delete these older versions because everything in the .snapshot directory is read-only.
