Delete files off of SSR permanently - bypassing the snapshot

  • 2 July 2021

We ran into a problem with a Nutanix File Server using SSR. (We never enabled it)

We ran out of space for our profiles, and when we started deleting old ones the Snapshot grew, basically meaning we didn't clear any space at all.

Some of the profiles that got deleted (robocopy script gone wrong) are actually needed. So we are going to restore those on a need basis. But, we need to remove the old ones still that are from users that are gone from the company. Is there a way to permanently delete them off the snapshot somehow?

Please ask for clarifications if none of this makes sense. My Nutanix isn't strong.

Hopefully you will find this helpful: How to delete Nutanix Files snapshots for space reclamation?

Thank you for answering.  I think since we are fighting a bug, this isn’t going to work for me.  When I go to the local snapshot page it is blank. I was hoping that there was a way I could look at the files in the snapshot.
