I had a file /usr/.snap/dump_snapshot being about 15GB in size, which  
I removed because the partition was filling up.
The file's date was always rather current, so I'm wondering, what it  
was for?
I did do a level 0 dump with -0 and -Lau parameters a few weeks ago  
and always do dumps on other boxes, but never saw a file in the .snap  
directory growing. For the other partitions, there are no such files,  
that's why I'm wondering.
Maybe someone can shed some light on this for me.
