  • Hi Godfrey,

    You are correct. If you are recovering a mailbox DPM recovers the complete mailbox database. And the data transfer will be EDB file size + log folder size of the database.  

    If you suspect DPM is transferring more data, check the recovered files size on the Exchange Server.

  • Hi Godfrey

    When you preform a revocery of a mailbox DPM must copy over the entire database/store. This is the only supported way of restoring data to an Exchange enviroment, this is why you see all the data transferd when you preform the recovery.

    Regarding the syncronization frequencey its a good thing to preform 15 or 30 minutes syncronizations. A tip is to make a recoery point every 4'th ohur.
