Changed permissions, full transfer RRS feed

  • Question

  • DPM 2012 R2

    I run a file server with about 16 million files. I removed an ntfs permission from a folder that effected abotu 350,000 files and i noticed my next synchronization appears to be sending the files again. Under "Data Transfered" it appears to be climbing to the number of the effected total file size. I dont mind the data transferred so much but am concerned about space that it takes up. Could anyone shed light on what is happening here for dpm when ONLY file permissions are changed.

  • From this post I undertand that only the meta data off the files will be updated (DPM 0210):

  • Thanks for the link.

    Just seems odd that it did a full "transfer" however no additional space seemed required.
