  • Hi Mark

    To delete a protection group, you must first stop protection of the group. Then

    1. In DPM Administrator Console, click Protection on the navigation bar.

    2. In the display pane, select the protection group to stop protecting.

    3. In the Actions pane, click Stop protection of group. The Stop Protection dialog box appears.

    4. Choose whether to retain or delete protected data:

      1. Click Retain protected data to retain the replica on disk with associated recovery points and tapes for the retention range.
      2. Click Delete protected data to delete the replica on disk and expire the recovery points on tapes.
    5. Click Stop Protection. Data sources within the protection group are no longer protected, and DPM deletes the protection group.

    Refrence :

    Thanks Saurabh Sinha
