How to Recover Data for File Servers

Updated: April 21, 2010

Applies To: System Center Data Protection Manager 2010

DPM supports recovery of data for file servers through the Recovery Wizard. When you double-click a protected volume on the Protected data pane in the wizard, DPM displays the data that belongs to that volume in the results pane. You can filter protected server names alphabetically by clicking Filter. After selecting a data source to recover in the tree view, you can select a specific recovery point by clicking the bold dates in the calendar. When you click Recover in the Actions pane, DPM starts the recovery job.

To recover protected data for file servers

  1. In DPM Administrator Console, click Recovery on the navigation bar.

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

  3. Available recovery points are indicated in bold on the calendar in the recovery points section. Select the bold date for the recovery point you want to recover.

  4. In the Recoverable item pane, click to select the recoverable item you want to recover.

  6. Review your recovery selection, and click Next.

  7. Specify the type of recovery you would like to perform:

    1. Recover to the original location.

    2. Recover to an alternate location. Type the alternate location, or click Browse and then, on the Specify Alternate Recovery Destination dialog box, select a recovery location. Click OK.

    3. Copy to tape. This option copies the volume that contains the selected data to a tape in a DPM library. When you select this option, click Next and, on the Specify library screen, select library details and tape options. You can compress or encrypt data on this screen.

  8. After you have specified the type of recovery, click Next.

  9. Specify your recovery options:

    1. Existing version recovery behavior. This option appears only if you selected Recover to original location in step 7. Select Create copy, Skip, or Overwrite.

    2. Restore security. This option appears only if you selected Recover to the original location or Recover to an alternate location in step 7. Select Apply security settings of the destination computer or Apply the security settings of the recovery point version.

    3. Network bandwidth usage throttling. Click Modify to enable throttling and to select Settings and Work Schedule, and then click OK.

    4. Notification. Click Send an e-mail when the recovery completes, and specify the recipients. Separate the e-mail addresses with commas.
