The following information and controls appear on Data Protection > SnapshotIQ > Snapshots.

SnapshotIQ Status

Total Number of Snapshots Pending Deletion
Displays the total number of snapshots that were deleted since the last snapshot delete job was run. The space consumed by these deleted snapshots will not be freed until the snapshot delete job is run again.
Total Number of Snapshot Aliases

Created
Displays the date that the snapshot was created.
Name / Path
Displays the name of the snapshot and the path of the directory referenced by the snapshot.
Size
Displays the amount of data stored by the snapshot.
Note Image

To reduce disk-space usage, snapshots that reference the same directory reference each other, with older snapshots referencing newer snapshots. If a snapshot references data stored by another snapshot, the data is not freed until both snapshots are deleted. Therefore, deleting a snapshot might not free the entire amount of space displayed because another snapshot might be referencing the data stored by the snapshot.

Expires
