  5. To keep the snapshot for longer than the default 12-hour TTL, tag it.
    Replace SNAPSHOTID with the identifier of your snapshot and TAG-NAME with your text.
    serviced snapshot tag SNAPSHOTID TAG-NAME
  6. To make a snapshot subject to the TTL value, untag it.
    Replace SNAPSHOTID with the identifier of your snapshot and TAG-NAME with your text.
