recovery points, synchronization, virtual machines RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    From what I have understan the differnce beetween recovery points and synchronization is following:

    For File Protection, synchcronization brings across the changed blocks in
    files to the DPM server. However recoveries can only be performed from
    shadow copies on the DPM server (recovery point). Synchronizations can run
    every 15 min, but recovery point creations run less often (default thrice a

    For Application Protection, every incremental is recoverable so every 15 min
    point in time is recoverable.

    How is it with hyper-v virtual machines? Is it the recovery point settings that are the lates version that is possible to restore from or is it the lates  synchronization?

  • For Hyper-V backup (as well as BMR) the recovery points are created on the full backup schedule. There are no intermediate synchronization for these backups.
