none
delete unused replica and recovery volume. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all, 

    I used MigrateDatasourceDataFromDPM.ps1 to migrate a protection group from a dpm disk to the other, try to release some space on the old disk.  when this has been done, I can see the protect group is working fine on the new disk, the same space has been occupied on the new disk. but on the old disk none space has been released. by check the partition via disk manager, found that MigrateDatasourceDataFromDPM.ps1 did not delete the partitions on the old disk. any script can been used to delete this unused partitions/volumes ? or can it been deleted manually via disk manager?

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

    this behavior is as expected.
    DPM will keep those volumes for Recovery Points until the retention time is over.

    You don't see it in DPM but they are needed for recovery purposes.

    New Recovery Points will be created on the new disk.

    regards
