Backing up SnapLock volumes

You can back up SnapLock volumes for additional data protection. When you restore a SnapLock volume, the volume's original settings—such as the default retention, minimum retention, and maximum retention—are preserved. Write once, read many (WORM) settings and Legal Hold are also preserved.


You can't back up a SnapLock FlexGroup volume.

You can restore a SnapLock volume's backup as a SnapLock or a non-SnapLock volume. However, you can't restore a non-SnapLock volume's backup as a SnapLock volume.
