If you need to create a copy of an existing folder or vdisk (I will call it dataset below) from one pool to another (even on the same pool, but you’d rather not create a clone), you could use the following procedure:

  1. Create new backup on source dataset
  2. Replicate last backup on source dataset
  3. Choose locally, and the destination dataset
  4. Delete backup from source dataset
  5. Delete backup from destination dataset
