At present i have a volume containing several large folders which have archive data. I have attempted to recover these using ~snapshot but due to the UNC length windows reaches it maximum and then stops the recovery.
Unfortunately it's a windows only environment.
I have found lots of articles showing how to Snap restore and Volume or single file to a new location but non on doing this with a folder, is this possible.
Solved! SEE THE SOLUTION

SnapRestore only works on file (lun) or volume. Have you tried ftp? It is included in ONTAP and 7.3 added secure ftp. You can also use ndmpcopy from a snapshot...enable ndmp then "ndmpcopy /vol/volname/.snapshot/snapshotname/path /vol/volname/targetpath"
