  • Hi,

    DPM estimates the amount of disk space it needs for the replica and the recovery point volumes estimated on what it thinks the growth rate will be, as a result I've found it can often allocate that volumes that are too large, especially if you enabled auto-grow - you can shrink the volumes though to recover this over estimated space. 

    You could try right clicking on one of your protection groups and selecting... a dialog box will open showing how much space is allocated to each replica & recovery point volume, there should be a "Shrink" link next to each recovery point volume, if you click the link DPM will recalculate the space needed for that recovery point volume and if possible reduce the volume. 

    If you have any "inactive protection for previously protected data" protection group you could maybe free up some disk space. 

    View or modify storage pool settings

    Kind regards,
