Changing the Path of a Shared Data Source
When you protect a shared folder, the path to the shared folder includes the logical path on the volume. If you move the shared folder, protection will fail.
If you must move a protected shared folder, remove it from its protection group and then add it to protection after the move.
Changing the Path of an Encrypted Data Source
If you change the path of a System Center 2012 – Data Protection Manager (DPM) protected data source on a volume that uses the Encrypting File System (EFS) and the new file path exceeds 5120 characters, data protection will fail. You must ensure that the new file path of the protected data source uses fewer than 5120 characters.
