    The steps to recover a DPM Server are here, however, instead of restoring replica from tape or secondary DPM server, you would just copy from the External USB HDD.

  • Hi,

    Have you tried administrative command prompt ?   Windows explorer is very picky when it comes to security.

  • Hi,

    Shadow copies are "read only" - you cannot change permissions on them.

  • 1)      Download psexec.exe from www.sysinternals.com
    2)      Run PSEXEC -s cmd.exe   (this will switch window to system context)
    3)      Afterwards - type WHOAMI it should return:

                      nt authority\system

    4)  Now CD to the volume under Program files\Microsoft System Center 2012\DPM\DPM\Volumes\shadowcopy\...
    5)  Xcopy the data to a removable drive.
