  • Hi,

    Change the recovery model for those two databases back to simple, then stop protection and retain replica.  When you re-protect the databases, use the "refresh" button to expand out the SQL server.  DPM will see that the databases are now in simple recovery mode and will only schedule express full backups.

    More details on changing recovery model here.
