Cloning a volume from a snapshot

You can create a new volume from a snapshot of a volume. When you do this, the system uses the snapshot information to clone a new volume using the data contained on the volume at the time the snapshot was created. This process stores information about other snapshots of the volume in the newly created volume.

Steps

  1. Click Data Protection > Snapshots.
  2. Click the Actions icon for the snapshot you want to use for the volume clone.
  3. In the resulting menu, click Clone Volume From Snapshot.
  4. Enter a Volume Name in the Clone Volume From Snapshot dialog box.
  5. Select a Total Size and size units for the new volume.
  6. Select an Access type for the volume.
  7. Select an Account from the list to associate with the new volume.
  8. Click Start Cloning.
