  • Hi,

    Recoveries initiated by the user for client protection are not really DPM jobs. DPM is basically just mounting VSS shadow copy for the time the client selected and letting the client copy data from them.  DPM has no knowledge if or what data was copied by the client.

  • Hi,

    Since the DPM engine is not involved in client initiated recovery, there is nothing logged.    This is basically the same as a client recovering from local shadow copy (using previous version tab) except the shadow copy is on the DPM server, not on the client machine.
