Snapshots have become increasingly popular with NAS platforms as they enable the end-user or business to have "backups" of user folders and files should you encounter unintended user error deleting files or ransomware, where snapshot can help fill the gap to protect you without disrupting business continuity.
Snapshot setup is straight forward but does take a few steps. We first go to our shared folder list, above we have just one folder named DATA.
We click on the blue 0 under snapshots to bring up the menu above. From here, we can enable scheduled snapshots, choose the days of the week and time.
The Auto Archive tab allows you to set up how to name the snapshot files, versions, or timestamped.
When you need to restore a folder from a snapshot, you simply go back to the shared folder list, click the number under the snapshot, check the box and click restore.
