I think that the answer is no, but I will ask..

Is there any way to get a Windows Samba client to be able to use Shadow Copy to view/restore ZFS snapshots?

I am running Ubuntu 11.10 with ZFS-Fuse. I have successfully created a ZFS pool, and now have snapshots automated. I think my roadblock is I am not able to make the snapshot directory (/.zfs) visible, and I therefore can't use Samba's shadow copy to pass it through to the Windows client. For a while, I had it working great on a FreeNAS box, but I gave up on FreeNAS since I also need a server for backup, FTP, bittorrent, and a few other things.
