Preserving snapshot of clone after it is refreshed (destroyed and recreated)

I need to know if there are any options for preserving a snapshot of a clone after the clone is refreshed from another source?

 

For example:

 

clonevolume exists

     snapshot is taken of clonevolume (SNAP1)

 

clonevolume is refreshed with another volume/snapshot  

     clonevolume offline/destroyed, which will remove the SNAP1 snapshot related to old version of clonevolume

     new clonevolume created (vol clone create.......)

 

After the refresh is there a way to revert clonevolume back to SNAP1?

 

Thanks.

"clonevolume is refreshed with another volume/snapshot  "

 

Having difficulty in understanding this part.. :-(

Generally, when a volume is deleted, all snapshots also will be deleted. If you want to restore something after that point, I think you should have an aggregate level snapshot.
