dpm_system_state. Backup it up or not? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Running DPM 2010 on Server 2008 R2
    I know that DPM creates this folder on the C: when you seledt to backup System Protection\System State.
    The question is, do I need to backup this folder 500MB folder if I'm backing up System Protection\System State already ?

  • Hi,

     

    No, if you are protecting both SystemState and C: volume for a protected system, you can deselect the c:\WindowsImagebackup folder.

  • To clarify, I can deselect C:\DPM_SYSTEM_STATE as long as I have System Protection\System State selected?

    Thanks

  • Hello,

    As long as you are selecting to backup the system state of a computer there is not need to also backup that folder created.

    Thanks
