ReadyNAS Snapshot and the Vault

Snapshot offers protection of shared folders on ReadyNAS (OS 6) devices. When enabled, your ReadyNAS will create a folder which contains snapshots referencing data stored in your shares. Strictly speaking, snapshots are not backups, but they function like backups because you can recover data from snapshots. It is important to know "snapshots reside on the same volume as the shared folder which they were created."
