  • Question

  • What format is the data if you transfer the data prepared by DPMBackup.exe?  Is it raw files or is it in a format that only DPM would be able to use for restores?

    Use DpmBackup to prepare files for backup when using non-VSS-enabled backup software. DpmBackup is a command-line tool included with DPM that performs the following tasks:

    • Creates and mounts backup shadow copies of each replica volume on the DPM server.

    • Creates database backups of the DPM database (DPMDB.mdf) and the Report database (ReportServer.mdf).

    DPM creates a mount point of the backup shadow copies of the replicas on the DPM server in the folder Program Files\Microsoft Data Protection Manager\DPM\Volumes\ShadowCopy\. The backup shadow copies of the replicas are organized by file server.
