Use of Physical Disk/Partitions to store backups RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to build a server with (2) 2TB physical hard drives using RAID1, build the OS a 100GB partition, and use the remaining 1.9TB as another partition to store the DPM backups?    OR... does DPM 2010 require a DEDICATED disk to store the backups?  I'm not sure if it only requires a partition or disk...


    I know with Windows 2008 (not R2), the backups need to be on a separate physical disk.  I'm hoping that's not the case with DPM 2010.

    I also cannot find this information anywhere in the documentation..?
