  • Windows Server 2008 R2 with Windows Server Backup does not support backup volumes that are larger than 2TB, Windows Server Backup has the size limitation of 2TB for a VHD.

    DPM uses Windows Server Backup (WSB) to backup the Bare Metal Recovery / System State backups, this is why you are seeing this error.

    In Windows Server versions 2012 and newer the Windows Server Backup uses VHDX disks, which can be greater than 2TB of size.

  • There are many other backup software out there that you can use, some are for free and others will have a price tag.
