You can calculate the amount of disk space that can be reclaimed if one or more Snapshot copies are deleted.
What you'll need
You must have the Operator, Application Administrator, or Storage Administrator role.
The volume must be online.
The volume must be a FlexVol volume; this capability is not supported with FlexGroup volumes.
In the left navigation pane, click Storage > Volumes.
In the Health: All Volumes view, select the volume that contains the Snapshot copies you want to view.
The list of Snapshot copies is displayed.
In the Volume / Health details page, click the Capacity tab.
In Details pane of the Capacity tab, in the Other Details section, click the link next to Snapshot Copies.
The number of Snapshot copies is a link that displays the list of Snapshot copies.
In the Snapshot Copies view, select the Snapshot copies for which you want to calculate the reclaimable space.
The reclaimable space (in percentage, and KB, MB, GB, and so on) on the volume is displayed.
To recalculate the reclaimable space, select the required Snapshot copies and click Recalculate.
