  • Hi Mhem,

    If you mean that you want to use "long term goal" strategy with DPM storage pool it is not possible.

    However you can do some kind of "long term" protection with disk protection. If you decrease frequency of recovery point you will extend your retention range.


    For file protection : 64 RP max => 1 RP/week => 64 weeks retention range

    For application protection : 448 RP max => 1 RP/week => 448 Weeks retention range
