Before protecting a SharePoint farm, you must ensure that the following prerequisites are installed on the System Center 2012 – Data Protection Manager (DPM) server.

System Center 2012 – Data Protection Manager (DPM)
For every 10 million items in the farm, there must be at least 2 GB of space on the volume where the DPM folder is located. This space is required for catalog generation. To enable you to use DPM to perform a specific recovery of items (site collections, sites, lists, document libraries, folders, individual documents, and list items), catalog generation creates a list of the URLs contained within each content database. You can view the list of URLs in the recoverable item pane in the Recovery task area of DPM Administrator Console.
