Data Protection Manager (DPM) relies on recovery point technology to allow you to recover your data. A recovery point, also referred to as a snapshot, is a point-in-time copy of the files and folders that are protected by the DPM server.

In the Recovery task area, you can access recovery points to recover previous versions of files in the event of data loss or corruption. DPM administrators can recover data, or they can configure end-user recovery so that end users can independently recover their own data.

In the Protection task area, you can manually create an immediate recovery point to disk or tape. You can also modify the protection options for a protection group to specify when and how often to create recovery points.

You can delete a recovery point only by using DPM Management Shell. You cannot delete a recovery point using DPM Administrator Console.
