Updated: November 1, 2008

Applies To: System Center Data Protection Manager 2007

The following table lists the types of data that DPM can protect and the level of data that you can recover by using DPM.

noteNote
For information about the specific software requirements for protected computers, see DPM System Requirements (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=108683).

Protectable and Recoverable Data

  • Virtual server host configuration

  • Virtual machines

  • Data for applications running on virtual machines1

All computers that can be protected by DPM 2007 except computers running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008

  • System state

  • File data

  • File data

1 Data for applications running in virtual machines must be protected and recovered as an application data source, not as a component of a protected virtual machine. For example, to protect and recover data for an instance of SQL Server running on a virtual machine, you install the DPM protection agent on the virtual machine and select the data source as a SQL Server database. When you install the protection agent on the virtual host and protect a virtual machine on the host, application data is also protected but can be recovered only by recovering the virtual machine itself.
