  • Hi in DPM you have option to protect servers on a System state / Bare metal level, so they can be restored to a certain time. On workstations I receive error:

    "DPM failed to create the backup. If you are backing up only System State, verify if there is enough free space on the protected computer to store the System State backup. On protected computers running Windows Server2008 or above, verify that Windows Server Backup (WSB) is installed and that it is not performing any other backup or recovery task. (ID 30214 Details: Internal error code: 0x80990ED0)"

    So the problem is that Windows 10 is not using Windows Server Backup feature to backup system state.

    Has anyone successfully created a system state backup for a Windows workstation?
