Restoring data using the Health: All Volumes view


You can restore overwritten or deleted files, directories, or an entire volume from a Snapshot copy by using the restore feature on the Health: All Volumes view.

Before you begin

You must have the Application Administrator or Storage Administrator role.

About this task

You cannot restore NTFS file streams.

The restore option is not available when:

  • The volume ID is unknown: for example, when you have an intercluster relationship and the destination cluster has not yet been discovered.

  • The volume is configured for SnapMirror Synchronous replication.


  1. In the Health: All Volumes view, select a volume from which you want to restore data.

  2. From the toolbar, click Restore.

    The Restore dialog box is displayed.

  3. Select the volume and Snapshot copy from which you want to restore data, if different from the default.

  4. Select the items you want to restore.

    You can restore the entire volume, or you can specify folders and files you want to restore.

  5. Select the location to which you want the selected items restored; either Original Location or Alternate Location.

  6. Click Restore.

    The restore process begins.
