Can't protect different files from same drive? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I seup a protection group for all my shares to backup to disk only. My plan was to do a full backup of all the files on each server to tape over the weekend, but it appears that DPM won't let you do that.

    How can I backup shares and sql databases to disk during business hours and save all my files to tape over the weekend?

  • Hi,


    You cannot put the same datasource is different protection groups, but you can set up one protection group. Configure short protection to disk using your short term recovery goals and long term protection to tape using your long term recovery goals.

  • Marc,

    Here is the issue I have with that. I only want to backup my shares during the week and the rest over the weekend to tape. If I use the same protection group I can't do that.

    How can I protect Shares and protect all the other files on that volume with one going to disk and the other going to tape?
