Did you get an answer to this…
The only thing I can think as an alternative, Is to clone the snapshot you want and then either work with the clone or then split it so it becomes its own standalone volume.
It seems an odd request though.. why are you trying to do it?

You can't restore a single volume from an aggregate snapshot. You have to restore the entire aggregate. This is why aggregate snapshots are disabled in ONTAP 8.1, I personally don't know anyone that has ever restored an aggregate. Some companies I have worked with deleted the snapshots and disabed this feature to recover the storage.

It would be really nice to have snaprestore -t file at the aggr level to restore a volume since a Flexvol to an aggr is like a file to a Flexvol. Not exactly but same hierarchy. Exactly right no way to restore one Flexvol. We did have a case where we had to aggr copy -s a specific aggr snap to a new aggr to get one volume back for a customer then mirror that Flexvol back...a full copy out but brute force. No easy way to do this.
