Snapshot: record volume/LUN state and replicate to another NAS
Snapshots will record the state of a volume/LUN on the NAS. When needed, use the snapshot to restore the NAS to the previous point of time. This protects you from accidental overwriting and malware encryptions. You can use the snapshot replica feature in the combine, to back up snapshots to other devices. This will help you form a healthy backup plan for avoiding data loss.
