Veritas Question

I have just ran a full backup onto an external Hardrive and when i tried to restore it, instead of saying full it says snapshot full?
anyone know what this means?

Thanks

A snapshot means you have a backup of 1 certain time.

There isn't really a difference, it just stresses that it is a copy of a certain state the system was in. Sometimes a backup that takes very long will not include a certain state, because it changes during the backup. A snapshot makes sure that it only copies the data of that certain time, if something is changed during that time, the changes are left out of the backup.
