A snapshot protects data by recording the state of a shared folder or LUN at a specific point in time. With snapshots, you can perform the following:

  • Restore a shared folder or LUN to a previous state.

  • Access and restore previous versions of files and folders.

  • Create an identical copy of a shared folder or LUN.


To use snapshots, your NAS model must support snapshots and have at least 1 GB of memory. For a list of compatible NAS models, see www.qnap.com/solution/snapshots.
