Recoverying data with snapshots

After I have taken the snapshot of the volume.
Let's say i have lost some files and need to recover them. What is the process of recoverying from snapshot?

Re: Recoverying data with snapshots

In what kind of disk enclosure?

A snapshot appears as a copy of the LUN, with the contents of the LUN at the time the snapshot was created.

If you only want to recover some files, present the snapshot to a server and get the files from there. It will see the LUN as it was in the moment the snapshot was created.

Another thing is "instant restore" which is done internally and discards all changes since the snapshot was created. Leaving the LUN as it was then.
