Reverting a Shared Folder Using a Remote Snapshot

Reverting restores a shared folder or LUN to the state at which the snapshot was taken. Restoring data using snapshot revert is faster than restoring individual files and folders.


Restoration time depends on the amount of data being restored 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 be the source folder for a Snapshot Replica job.

  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 Revert Folder Snapshot.

    All changes made after the snapshot was taken will be deleted.

  7. Optional: Configure the following settings.



    Take a new snapshot before reverting

    QuTS hero takes a snapshot before starting the revert. This ensures that changes made to data since the snapshot was taken are not permanently lost.

    Enable encryption during transfer

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


    If the network connection is interrupted or if the storage configuration of the source or destination NAS changes while reverting, the shared folder might become inaccessible. If this happens, revert the shared folder again using a local or remote snapshot.

  8. Click Remote Revert.

    The Remote Revert Warning window opens.

  9. Enter the QuTS hero administrator password.
  10. Click OK.

The status of the shared folder changes to Remote Reverting. QuTS hero disables access to the shared folder until the revert process is finished.
