Use the Select Library and Tape Details page of the Create New Protection Group Wizard to specify the number of copies that you need and how many tapes you want to allocate for long-term protection. You also specify whether you want DPM to encrypt and compress the data, and whether you want to check the backup for data integrity.

This wizard page contains the elements described in the following table.
