I answered my own questions from some experimentation.  Snapshots are lost 
when transferring StorageSets.  But now I realize that the bigger problem is 
that if I create CD-ROMs for the client, they can't be read without a CD-R 
unit, which the client doesn't have.  I'm now wondering what the best way is 
of reclaiming the $600 invested in Jaz cartridges.  Perhaps I should do a 
restore and burn the restored files onto CDs?  I would lose snapshots, but 
that would have been the case anyway if I have preserved the StorageSets 
during the transfer.

Any suggestions out there?
