  • Hi,

    DPM protects files at the block level, so changed blocks since the last synchronization will be sent to the DPM server.  Keep in mind that since there is no native support for Lotus notes using a vss writer all db files will be crash consistent and not application consistent.

  • Hi,

    As long as the files are on a protected ntfs volume, DPM can protect it regardless of the file type.
