A client wants to restore single file from a snapshot.
He has 28 hourly snapshots and wants to restore a file from a certain point in time.
I told him he should determine which snapshot was associated with that point in time and then go in to the corresponding snapshot folder.
This works for him but.....
He asked me why all the hourly snapshotfolders have the same timestamp.
I told him the truth. I DONT KNOW!!
I would like to be the all knowing consultant again. (only from his point of view!!!)
Can someone tell me?????

Take a look at kb22656 and 3010862:
By default, every filer volume contains a directory named .snapshot, through which users can access old versions of files in that directory.
To see the list of times at which a snapshot was created:
Refer to Data ONTAP Data Protection Online Backup and Recovery Guide > Accessing snapshots from clients for more information on snapshot management.
