About manual snapshots
You must create a snapshot before making any changes to your cluster’s environment, loading a large amount of data, or changing the structure of a table. ThoughtSpot supports up to 20 manual snapshots. You must clear them to create new snapshots. You can delete a snapshot from the Admin Console.
ThughtSpot generates a snapshot in approximately 20 seconds, depending on the size of the cluster. To restore from a snapshot, contact ThoughtSpot Support.
