Hello Hans,

I'm afraid you have to discard a overflown snapshot. That's what all the manuals I know say.

Kind regards

Betreff: [linux-lvm] Snapshot Full

I hate to have to ask this, but how do I handle a full snapshot that has 
been disabled?  I would like to extend the lv, remout it and keep using 
it.  However, I am getting superblock errors and the like.

I have been searching through the archives and on Google for hours and I 
must not be looking for the right thing.

Thanks in advance,
