Hi,

I have just seen that I have snapshots of my cifs volumes, I have updated some folders and deleted one

When I go in my windows client,I select my shared folder and click on "previous versions", it says "no previous versions" are available

my .snapshot folder is configured as visible

do you have any Idea?

regards

Yves lefevre

Cluster-Mode does not yet support VSS so users can get to snapshot files in the ~snapshot folder but not from the previous versions tab yet.  We should see it eventually but without an updated NDA preso I don't know when.

Hi Scott,

It seems that the folder ~snapshot is also unavailable, is that normal yet?

It should be from the share path of you append \~snapshot
