Cloning a Shared Folder from a Remote Snapshot


The time required to clone the shared folder depends on the amount of data stored in the folder and the connection speed between the two NAS devices.

  1. Go to Storage & Snapshots > Storage > Storage/Snapshots.
  2. Select a shared folder.

    The shared folder must have at least one snapshot.

  3. Click Snapshot, and then select Snapshot Manager.

    The Snapshot Manager window opens.

  4. Under Select snapshot location, select a remote NAS.
  5. Select a snapshot.
  6. Click Clone.
  7. Select one of the following:
    • Clone

    • Instant Clone

    The Clone Snapshot or Instant Clone Snapshot window opens.

  8. Specify a shared folder name.
  9. Select a storage pool.
  10. Optional: Select Enable encryption during transfer.

    QuTS hero encrypts the snapshot before sending it for additional security.

  11. Click OK.

QuTS hero clones the shared folder, and then displays a confirmation message.
