Snapshots

Create a Snapshot

Snapshots allow you to preserve state of a directory item for restoration at a later time. To create a snapshot, simply right click on any directory item and select “Create Snapshot”

Create Snapshot 1

This will open a dialogue allowing you to give the snapshot a name and a description.

Create Snapshot 2

Once created the selected directory item should now show the created snapshot in the details panel.

Create Snapshot 3

Restore a Snapshot

To restore a snapshot, simply right click on a snapshot and select “restore”

Restore Snapshot 1

By default it will ask to overwrite the original directory item which may be desirable for tasks where paths and links are concerned. This will however overwrite the data with the snapshot.

Restore Snapshot 2

If pathing is not a problem (standalone asset) you can freely adjust the path so as to not overwrite.

Restore Snapshot 3

Once complete the Restore Operation will create the new directory and all its contents exactly in the state that the snapshot was originally created.

Restore Snapshot 4

Omniverse Navigator provides additional functionality for tagging assets. This functionality requires the following services to be available:
