  • Hello Durgairaja!

    If you have reduced the retention period, DPM will run a housekeeping job nightly to prune expired recovery points.

    You can also delete recovery points, but this will only free up used space on the recovery point volume, it won't return space to the storage pool.

    So to reclaim unused space on a recovery point volume and return it to the DPM storage pool, you need to shrink the recovery point volume:

    1. Select your Protection Group, right-click and select Modify disk allocation.

    2. In Replica Volume field set to a lower value and click Ok.

    3. Perform a consistency check.

    Best regards,
