Point-in-Time Snapshot

Point-in-time snapshot is illustrated in Figure 6–2. Data from the master volume of each disk is copied to the shadow volume on the same disk. The point-in-time bitmap tracks differences between the master volume and the shadow volume. When data is copied to the shadow volume, the point-in-time bitmap is reset.
