How to Recover Data

Updated: April 21, 2010

Applies To: System Center Data Protection Manager 2010

In DPM, use the Recovery Wizard to recover data. When you recover data, you can use default settings or you can modify recovery options to specify the recovery location and security settings for the recovered data. To minimize the time required for recovery operations and to decrease the size of data being transferred, DPM uses on-the-wire compression for all recovery operations.

How to recover data

  2. Browse or search for the data you want to recover, and then, in the results pane, select the data.
