DPM reports total data size of entire source volume when selecting a single file share to protect RRS feed

  • Question

  • Trying to back up a single file share using DPM 2012 R2, about 30GB of data, but when I try to add the member to my protection group, it reports the "total data size" as 4549GB, which is the amount of data stored on the *entire volume* where the file share resides. What am I doing wrong?
