A snapshot is a point in time image of the backup folders and indicates the state of the backup folders at a particular point of time. inSync creates a snapshot while backing up a user device. It contains the list of files and folders that inSync backed up.


To view the snapshots of a device

  1. On the inSync Management Console menu bar, click Users.
  2. Click the user for whose snapshots you want to view.
  3. Click Restore > Manage Snapshots. The Manage Snapshots window appears.
  4. Select the device whose snapshots you want to view.

The list of snapshots of the device is displayed on the left panel. Each snapshot is identified by the date and time the backup was taken.

Note: The most recent snapshot of a device cannot be deleted as long as the User/Device exists in the inSync management console, regardless the User/Device is marked as inactive or disabled.
