  • Hi

    How is DPM 2007 backing up the system state and what is your retention policy? Is it taking a full backup each time and keeping it for days or weeks?

    You can stop protection of the member and remove it from the protection group and add it back again. System state backups for Windows Server R2 should be about 7-14GB depending on the roles installed on the server.
