Support migrations to different snapshot stores
Currently it is not possible to transition between snapshot store types.
There are two options currently when transitioning to the new one.
- Terminate backups (deleting all previous snapshots)
- Create a new project and abandon the previous one to allow automated restores at a later time
Both of these options are difficult to manage for large deployments. The first option requires you to store the snapshots elsewhere and disallows automated restores. The second option requires many operations and clutters the Ops Manager project list.
Ideally we should be able to transition from any store location/type to any other location/type. One of the following features would be viable for this request.
- Leaving snapshots on the previous snapshot store, and continuing backups on a new one
- Migrating all snapshots from one snapshot store to the new snapshot store

Now it is a manual process to download the snapshot(s) to another safe place.
Can we a provision to schedule download the snapshot(s) to another safe place.
