DPM 2012, where are the improvements? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Since upgrading from DPM 2010 I don't see anything that looks to be changed except they've moved the icons around.

    DPM still doesn't support USB devices and simple improvements like allowing custom backup times (that aren't rounded to nearest hour), aren't here.

    I guess it was more important to get out the System Center "suite" instead of the actual changes that matter. I hope we don't have to wait another four years for these changes to take place.
