Hiding the Snapshot copy directory

You can use System Manager to hide the Snapshot copy directory (.snapshot) so that the Snapshot copy directory is not visible when you view your volume directories. By default, the .snapshot directory is visible.


  1. Click Storage > Volumes.
  2. From the Volumes on SVM list, select All SVMs.
  3. Select the volume for which you want to hide the Snapshot copy directory.
  4. Click More Actions > Manage Snapshots > Configuration Settings.
  5. Ensure that the Make snapshot directory (.snapshot) visible option is not selected, and then click OK.
