Revert a volume with a snapshot

Last reviewed 2024-04-25 UTC

You can use a snapshot to revert a volume to a prior state. This functionality is supported for both the general purpose CVS and the CVS-Performance service types. You can't revert a volume that is in a replication relationship.

  1. In the Google Cloud console, go to the Snapshots page.
  2. On the snapshot you want to revert to, click under Show More, and then select Revert.
