 Create a snapshot logical volume (or snapshot) for an existing, so called
 original logical volume (or origin).
 Snapshots provide a 'frozen image' of the contents of the origin
 while the origin can still be updated. They enable consistent
-backups and online recovery of removed/overwritten data/files. The snapshot
-does not need the same amount of storage the origin has. In a typical scenario,
-15-20% might be enough. In case the snapshot runs out of storage, use
+backups and online recovery of removed/overwritten data/files.
+Thin snapshot is created when the origin is a thin volume and
+the size is not specified. Thin snapshot shares same blocks within
+the thin pool volume.
+The snapshot with the specified size does not need the same amount of
+storage the origin has. In a typical scenario, 15-20% might be enough.
+In case the snapshot runs out of storage, use
 .BR lvextend (8)
 to grow it. Shrinking a snapshot is supported by
 .BR lvreduce (8)
