Mounting Snapshots

You can mount any available snapshot, to access the data available in the snapshot. Snapshots must be mounted on a MediaAgent with the same operating system as the snapshot volumes. Currently, snapshots are mounted only on Windows machine. You can mount these snapshots on a particular drive or a specified empty folder. Once the snapshot is mounted you can view the details of each snapshot, which helps during the restore operation.

On the Create Restore Job Choose Saveset page, select the SaveSet Name and then click Explore Snapshots.
Select the snapshot from the Saveset Name list to mount and click Mount.
Select Mount using drive letter, and select the drive from the list, and click Mount.
Select Mount in folder, and browse the folder for the mount point, and click Mount.
In the Explore Snapshot page, the status in Mounted column changes to Yes.

Unmounting Snapshots

The unmount snapshot operation removes the snapshot that is mounted on the drive or folder.

On the Create Restore Job — Choose Saveset page, select the SaveSet Name and then click Explore Snapshots.
Select the snapshot from the Saveset Name list to unmount and click Unmount.

In the Explore Snapshot page, the status in Mounted column changes to No.
