  3. In the Create a Volume page, provide information for the new volume.

    The new volume uses the same protocol that the snapshot uses.
    For information about the fields in the Create a Volume page, see:

    By default, the new volume includes a reference to the snapshot that was used for the restore operation from the original volume from Step 2, referred to as the base snapshot. This base snapshot does not consume any additional space because of how snapshots work. If you don't want the new volume to contain this base snapshot, select Delete base snapshot during the new volume creation.
