Rolling Back Data from a Snapshot


If data on an EVS disk is incorrect or damaged, you can roll back data from a snapshot to the source disk.


  • Data of a snapshot can be rolled back only to its source disk. Rollback to another disk is not possible.

  • Data of a snapshot can be rolled back only when the snapshot status is Available and its source disk status is Available (not attached to any server) or Rollback failed. If the source disk is attached, detach the disk first.

  • A snapshot whose name starts with autobk_snapshot_vbs_, manualbk_snapshot_vbs_, autobk_snapshot_csbs_, or manualbk_snapshot_csbs_ is automatically generated during backup. Such a snapshot can only be viewed. It cannot be used to roll back the disk data.

  • Spot instances do not support snapshot-based rollback of the disk data.
