Is the Snapshot Function Oriented to Files or Directories? What Are the Restrictions on Using It?

The OceanStor 9000 provides a directory-level snapshot function.

The restrictions on using this function are as follows:
Snapshot nesting is not supported. If snapshots have been created for a directory, no snapshots can be created for the parent directory and subdirectories of the directory.
A snapshot root directory (a directory for which you want to create a snapshot) cannot be deleted.
Hard links cannot be created for files in snapshots.
Hard links are not protected by snapshots. Source files of hard links are protected by snapshots. The hard link in a snapshot root directory cannot be deleted, moved, or renamed.
