After you create a protection group, you might want to protect a data source on a protected volume that you did not select for protection when you created the group.
The following are guidelines for adding members to a protection group:
- When you select a data source that contains a
reparse point (mount points and junction points are data sources
that contain reparse points), DPM prompts you to specify whether
you want to include the target of the reparse point in the
protection group. The reparse point itself is not replicated; you
must manually re-create the reparse point when you recover the
- We recommend that you exclude system volumes
and program folders from protection as a volume or share.
Protecting a volume that contains system files and program folders
does not enable you to restore the operating system or state of a
computer. To restore the state of a computer, you must select the
computer's system state as the protected data source. For
information about restoring a computer, in the DPM Operations
Guide, see Disaster Recovery
- All storage groups on a single computer
running Exchange Server 2003 must be in the same protection
