You can enable the end-user recovery option to allow end users to independently recover data by retrieving recovery points of files. Users can recover data through shared folders on the DPM server, through a Distributed File System (DFS) namespace, or by using the Document Recovery task pane in Microsoft Office. Enabling end-user recovery involves enabling the end-user recovery feature on the DPM server and installing the shadow copy client software on the client computers.

End-user recovery is supported in the Active Directory Domain Services domains in which the domain controllers are running either Windows Server 2003 or Windows 2000 Server with Service Pack 4 or later installed and with schema modifications enabled.

To get the latest updates for Windows 2000 Server, see Microsoft Knowledge Base article 260910 ( For instructions for enabling schema modifications on a Windows 2000 domain controller, see Microsoft Knowledge Base article 285172 (
