  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I am currently running DPM 2007 and am now having issue with files that have encryption enabled on then. I keep geeting the access denied error, I have tried to exclude these but there seems to be a lot of these placed in various locations, Is there a way for DPM to ignore or just skip these files, This is causing me alot of issue on our file servers.

    thank you in advance.

  • Hi Mat,

    As you might already know DPM cannot protect files that have any of the following combinations of file attributes:

    • Encryption and reparse
    • Encryption and Single Instance Storage (SIS)
    • Encryption and case sensitivity
    • Encryption and sparse
    • Case sensitivity and SIS
    • Sparse and reparse
    • Compression and SIS

    More info on unsupported data: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb808689.aspx

    As the file type of you're encrypted files are probably various and they are not in a central location then, as far as i know, there is no other solution but to exclude each and everyone of those files. (or keep ignoring the alerts :-(    )

    Maybe you can consider disabeling file encryption on the file server?

    Hope this helps,

    Marthijn.
