How to backup VSS snapshot to DPM 2012? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I configure every server with different single partition and all active file drive and the VSS snapshot daily run at 11:50PM.

    VSS snapshot is great feature since day one to have quick restoration for network files servers.

    Because VSS can hold differences for daily.

    However I want to backup these VSS snapshot to DPM 2012, possible? How do I do it?

  • Hi,

    It is not possible to backup only the VSS snapshots for volumes that have them enabled.  You will need to protect the volumes them selves with DPM and DPM will make it's own snapshots that can be used to restore previous versions of files using the recovery page in DPM GUI.
