Example

You are protecting folder C:\Sales on the file server FS01. You run DpmBackup on the DPM server to prepare the replica for backup. The backup shadow copy of C:\Sales is located at C:\Program Files\Microsoft Data Protection Manager\DPM\Volumes\ShadowCopy\FS01\C-8d2a01f3-4b01-11d9-b735-806e6f6e6963\ReplicaDir\Sales.

The backup shadow copy on the DPM server is backed up to tape. When you restore the Sales folder from tape to file server FS01, it creates the following path:

C:\Sales\Program Files\Microsoft Data Protection Manager\DPM\Volumes\ShadowCopy\FS01\C-8d2a01f3-4b01-11d9-b735-806e6f6e6963\Replicadir\Sales

To restore the correct path information, you run the following command:

FsPathMerge.exe –FS “C:\Sales\Program Files\Microsoft Data Protection Manager\DPM\Volumes\ShadowCopy\FS01\C-8d2a01f3-4b01-11d9-b735-806e6f6e6963\ReplicaDir\Sales” C:\Sales

To restore the correct path information and delete the original contents of C:\Sales, you run the following command:

FsPathMerge.exe –FS “C:\Sales\Program Files\Microsoft Data Protection Manager\DPM\Volumes\ShadowCopy\FS01\C-8d2a01f3-4b01-11d9-b735-806e6f6e6963\ReplicaDir\Sales” C:\Sales -Y
