DPM 1801 - Persist security settings Share level vs Volume level difference? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I was wondering what is the difference between protecting a file server at the share level vs the volume level when it comes to recovery security settings? When I restore from Volume I got all shares and security settings back, but when I restore from share level i did not get any security settings back if I choose "Apply the security settings of the recovery Point version"?

  • Hi,

    Share permissions are registry based and would be protected / restored as part of system state backup.

    Registry information is not included in file server backups, be that at the volume or share level.  Only System State (or BMR which included system state) backup will contain the registry based shares and permissions.

    Kind regards,
