DPM 2012 - Backup single file RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, we have a VM that has two virtual disks vhd. One "C" for system (windows server 2008 R2) and a second disk "D" for Data.

    I want to backup only the C vhd but they are both stored in the same folder. So when I create the protection group I cannot select the vhd that I want.

    There is any way to select only one file to backup?

  • In DPM you cannot select the VHD you want to backup. You have to backup the whole VM.

    You could backup C:\ as File System by installing the agent inside the VM. Or use the BMR method to backup the guest and exclude D: in the backup.
