Hello,

Select the snapshot, click Settings, and then check "allow snapshot visible".
Then you will see the #snapshot in the corresponding shared folder.

Hello,

However, if the snapshot is backing up an encrypted shared folder, the Show Snapshot selection is not available. Where are the snapshots for these folders ?

With kind regards

It is stored on the same volume as the shared folder, and the snapshot visibility is not available for encrypted shared folders.

So that would mean if it is stored in the same folder, which is encrypted, that you can't access the snapshot when you restart the server and you haven't decrypted the shared folder yet, right ?
It is important to me that the snapshot of the encrypted folder is therefore also encrypted itself.

With kind regards

Not the same folder, it is stored in the Snapshot directory of the volume where the shared folder is located. Snapshots of encrypted shared folders cannot be browsed whether the encrypted folder is mounted or not. Before restoring snapshots, you need to unmount the encrypted shared folder.
