When and why does Ontap creates a snapshot folder with the . and when with a ~.
All my other snapshot directories are available through \\...\~snapshot
Why is there a difference?
Thx 4 any answer

By default, every volume contains a directory named .snapshot through which users can access old versions of files in that directory. Users can gain access to Snapshot copies depending on the file-sharing protocol used—NFS or CIFS.
The actual path to the snapshots is the directory name .snapshot.

Thx 4 your answer.
good to know that .snapshot is the default directory.
But why is there a ~snapshot directory and when it is visible?
As far as I understand this Netapp Library Entry the ~snapshot is only visible, when accessing the root of a volume and and .snapshot in root and also subfolders.
Can anyone confirm this?
