Accessing Snapshot copies from CIFS clients

You can access the data within Snapshot copies from CIFS clients.

Before you begin

Ensure that the cifs.show_snapshot option is set to on.


  1. To access Snapshot copies on Windows NT 4 or other Windows clients (Windows 95 or later), click Start > Run menu, then enter the following command:\\systemname\share\.snapshot (or ~snapshot or ~SNAPSHT)

    systemname is the name of the storage system you are using.

    share is the name of the Windows share that you want to access.
    Snapshot copies can also be accessed lower in the share by providing a path to a lower directory. Snapshot copies can be accessed through DOS on any system by changing to the ~SNAPSHT directory.
