Hi All:

Using FreeBSD 8.1, amd64 - I wanted to recover files from a snapshot of
usr/home. Everything I've found via googling refers to a link such as

However, I'll be darned if I can find any such link. Snapshots existing are:

NAME                                   USED  AVAIL  REFER  MOUNTPOINT
zroot/usr at 2011-01-02                  1.06G      -  10.2G  -
zroot/usr/home at 2011-07-09              419M      -  11.9G  -
zroot/usr/ports at 2011-01-02             720M      -   723M  -
zroot/usr/ports/distfiles at 2011-01-02   310K      -  2.72G  -
zroot/usr/ports/packages at 2011-01-02   20.0K      -  24.0K  -
zroot/usr/src at 2011-01-02               159M      -   310M  -

And ZFS is version 3:

This system is currently running ZFS filesystem version 3.
All filesystems are formatted with the current version.
Either 1) I'm looking in all the wrong places, 2) the link was somehow
deleted, 3) ZFS has changed TWTAD (the way things are done).

Can anyone point me in the right direction?
