Computers running client operating systems (64-bit, 32-bit)

Note the following:

  • Protected volumes must be formatted as NTFS file system. DPM cannot protect volumes formatted as FAT or FAT32.

  • The volume must be at least 1 gigabyte (GB) for DPM to protect it.

    DPM uses the Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) to create a snapshot of the protected data, and VSS will create a snapshot only if the volume size is greater than or equal to 1 GB.
