Snapshot integration with Windows Explorer

Post by Spewk » 09 Apr 2020, 00:10

Hi all,
i'm succesfully using snapshot app in my TNAS with TOS 4.1.21
is there any way to integrate it within Windows Explorer?

I've succesfully done snapshot of some shares, but i can see them only in the Snapshot app, they're not visible from Explorer's "previous versions" as done on other filers
I know i can show them as a #snapshot folder, but i would like to know if an implementation of that type is ongoing

thank you

Daniele

The snapshots would be visible with SMB access to TNAS once you have checked "Allow snapshot visible"

hi Spewk,
Snapshot in TNAS is supported by btrfs file system, it is not compatible with windows file system, so at present, this Snapshot is not able to work with Windows "recover from previous versions".
