Use the Review Disk Allocation 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 protected file servers and workstations for the change journal.

We recommend that you accept the default space allocations that DPM recommends unless you are certain that they do not meet your needs. Overriding the default allocations can result in allocation of too little or too much space. For information about how DPM allocates disk space, in the DPM 2007 Planning Guide, see "Allocating Space for Protection Groups" in Planning Protection Groups (
