ZFS Filesystem

InfiniCLOUD offers a secure snapshot feature built in to each account to ensure that data may be restored in the event that it is accidentally deleted or overwritten.

Snapshots will be preserved in the filesystem at the time the account is created.

In addition to snapshots taken every three hours (8 in total), a daily snapshot of the user's data will also be captured. To enable the restoration of earlier file versions, the snapshot history will be stored for up to 14 days.

Following the 14 day period, the oldest captured snapshot will automatically be replaced with the most recent one.




*You cannot recover data that is not contained in a ZFS snapshot.

When the account's storage space gets full, the snapshots will be automatically deleted without affecting the user's uploaded data.

* The ZFS values are used to calculate the capacity of uploaded files and directories (folders). The actual usable capacity varies greatly (between 70 and 130%) depending on how you use it because the calculation method is different depending on the file system that is used on your device (NTFS, FAT, exFAT, HFS+, ext, etc.).
