You can restore a CVD to a previous snapshot from the Grid view.

When you perform Revert to Snapshot from the Grid view, you select the required snapshot through the wizard process. Any snapshots shown in the Grid view list are for information purposes only and are not part of the wizard process. For more information about the procedure, see in Restore a Device to a CVD Snapshot in the Horizon Mirage Administrator's Guide.

Revert to Snapshot is performed uniquely when run from the Timeline view. See Revert to Snapshot in the Timeline View.


In the Grid view, click the Revert to Snapshot action icon at the top of the window.


Choose the required snapshot.


Choose the revert options:

Select the snapshot date to which you want to revert.

Restore System Only check box (selected by default): This restores system files only, including the base layer, user-installed applications and user machine settings. The user area content is not affected and any new files in the user area are not erased.

The option behavior depends if the reversion you are performing is to same OS or cross-OS.



If to the same OS, for example, Windows 7 to Windows 7:

Deselect this check box if you want to restore the entire CVD, including the User area, from the CVD snapshot.

If the checkbox is deselected, any application, setting, or document in the current CVD that does not exist in the snapshot is erased from the endpoint.

If to a different OS, for example, Windows 7 to Windows XP/Vista:

This checkbox is deselected and dimmed so the entire CVD, including the User area, is always restored from the CVD snapshot.

Click Next to continue.


Complete the domain details. This applies only for Cross-OS reversions.

Fill in the domain details needed for the device to rejoin the domain.

Type the Domain and OU or select them from the drop-down menus.

The drop-down menus are pre-populated with all known domains in the system. The required syntax pattern is shown for each text box.


Click Next and Finish.
