  • It does not work.  Enterprise Vault changes regular documents into stub files (pointers).  DPM classified archive files as reparse date and does not support this.

    If you back this server up with DPM you will find that your file server is constantly being backed up by the DPM server.  As Gigs of data is being archived on a daily basis, the dpm console see's this as file that have been changed and tries to back them up.

    We ended up using another backup product to solve our archiving issue.
