Re: [linux-lvm] Doubts on Snapshots

This is a misunderstanding of what snapshot does. To minimize copying, it makes a special volume containing the OLD versions of only those sectors CHANGED since the snap was made. Thus, when mated with the original, continually-being-updated volume, it can reconstruct its state at the time of the snap. Without the original, it cannot do much.
I think what you want is mirroring or rsync.

I have connected a pen drive and make a logical volume from it. then i take a snapshot of this logical volume and the snapshot logical volume lies in hard disk. After that i plugged out the pen drive. Without pen drive being plugged into the system can i recover the data of pen drive using the snapshot volume.

Waiting for reply

Thanks and Regards
