How to set recovery points for files once a month? RRS feed

Answers

  • Hi,

    DPM has a minimum recovery point time of once per week for short term recovery points.  If have a desire of only backing up once a month, use only the long term tape protection option.

  • You can use a VTL (Firestreamer) that will write your recovery Point to disk but present the granularity of tape.

  • Is there any workarouds to make backup monthly using short term backup (for e.g. powershell script)? Is it possible to use long term backup, but save backups in disks?
