Before volume-based SnapRestore is carried out, SnapDrive for UNIX performs some checks that a user can override using -force option. These checks are required so that volume-based SnapRestore is used safely.

It is recommended that you follow the various checks that the system performs, but you can override these checks by using the -force option.

If you have provided -force option, then during volume-based SnapRestore execute, a prompt message is displayed to over-ride these checks and proceed.
