Is it possible to have a stand-alone server be a member of 2 protection groups? This is the scenario...
PROTECTION GROUP ONE
Perform BMR (Bare metal recovery) for c:drive which has all OS stuff
PROTECTION GROUP TWO (Same Server)
Perform backup of d:drive for restoring individual data files.
Want bare metal backup with the ability to restore individual files.

Yes, each data source can be in a separate protection group (PG). The exception to the rule would be individual file shares that are on the same volume, in that case it's a single data source (a volume) to DPM and cannot be split between PG's.
