Restoring LUN snapshots

I have a LUN with 3 snapshots on Data OnTap 8.0 7-mode.  The current version of the LUN, which was in use, was accidentally deleted.  Can I still revert to the snapshot from yesterday or will the old snapshots be gone?


Re: Restoring LUN snapshots


CloudMiner -


If the snapshots are still there, you can restore the LUN.


You can list the snapshots on the volume containing the LUN with System Manager or the 'snap list' command on the CLI.


You can restore the LUN from SnapDrive, or using volume SnapRestore, or cloning the LUN from the snapshot.

I hope this response has been helpful to you.
