Use the Allocate storage page of the Create New Protection Group Wizard to review and change the space allocations on the storage pool for the replicas and recovery points that DPM recommends for the protection group. Space is also allocated on client computers for the change journal.

We recommend that you co-locate your data if you have a large number of client computers. You will not be able to protect 1000 client computers with one DPM server without co-locating your data. We recommend that you co-locate if you have 10 or more client computers in a protection group.
