Thanks once again Freddie. So just to be clear, if the only thing I have is a snapshot, I'm probably out of luck if I have to rebuild the entire system, but if I just need some files from a prior date, I'm OK.

I haven't messed with zfs, but it may be worth it for use in my customer accounts. I will be building a NAS box for a client next week, and I am considering zfs as the file system. Is there anything I should or should not do in this case? We are going to have two RAID5 arrays, with 4 1.5TB drives in each. The second array will be used for backup of the first array. The production array will serve up NFS shares for our VM disk space.

Thanks so much again for your prompt responses.
