  • Hi,

    1) Make sure the DPM storage pool shows unallocated space greater than the sum of the amount of data that want to protect on that volume, plus space for the addition of the recovery point volume.

    2) When adding the volume to the protection group, click on the MODIFY button to modify the disk allocation, then click on the calculate button.


    After calculation is finished, the required disk space will be reduced.
