Re: Difference between Snap, Clone & Mirror

1. Snap - Point in time copy; Clone - exact copy of source; Mirror - Similar to clone and will be sync regularly;

2. Snap - Capturing the status in that time. It has two types as Copy on First Write (CoFW) and Redirect on Write (RoW)

Below link provide you how it works,

Copy-on-write & Redirect-on-write

3. Please go through the doc shared by dynamox
