Re: Disabling snapshot symlinks during manual snapshot
:For a MS Windows user it will look like the actual pic below.
:Clicking on the snapshot Directory they can get the snapshot contents :-)
I am totally amazed that it actually works. Wow, very cool. Talk
about instant gratification!
:I plan to configure a Slave mirror on another Disk for this PFS. I can

:Suppose I configure the prune-min period of the Slave pfs as 2d.
:Will I be able to generate 5 min snapshots from it of the previous day
:from it should I lose the Master PFS Disk?
:I mean if you have the history retained for 2 days can you create
:snapshots of the filesystem of a previous time?
Yes. So, for example, if you were to set prune-min to 5d then
no pruning will be done for the most recent 5 days worth of
fine-grained history, regardless of what the snapshot interval
is set to. Thus you can safely access fine-grained transaction
ids within the last 5 days. Beyond 5 days, however, you have to
use the snapshot transaction ids from the softlinks and/or snapls.
This has not been well tested but that was the intent of the
