Dell PowerStore Configuring Volumes

View snapshots column

PowerStore Manager enables you to see snapshots that have been taken of a storage object and a table view of these snapshots. This quick access to snapshots helps you to restore an object to its previous state.

About this task

The Snapshots column is not visible by default in PowerStore Manager. The column can be made visible for block storage, file storage, and virtual machines. You can find the Snapshots column on the following pages:
  • Storage > Volumes
  • Storage > Volume Groups
  • Storage > File Systems
  • Compute > Virtual Machines


  1. Click the Show/Hide Table Columns icon on the right.
  2. Scroll down and click the Snapshots checkbox.
    The number of snapshots is displayed for that storage object as a clickable element.
  3. (Optional) Click the number in the snapshots column to go to the Snapshots page for that storage object.
