Protect Cluster Shared Folders using DPM 2007

Hi All,

I use to have my shared folders protected using DPM 2007.Now,we moved to a File Server cluster enviroment:Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise x64.I installed the agents on each cluster nodes and I can see the MSFPCluster from DPM ,where I can select my netnames or services and see my shared folders.My problem started when I was going to add for example 3 shared folders to my protection group called Shared Folders.No matter if I choose a shared folder from a cluster volume (LUN) or if I choose the whole volume where all my shared folders are,DPM always needs the whole amount of the volume.It hurts me because my shared folders (the ones I would like to protect) only have  90GB and DPM is asking me for 3.5TB of free space which is my whole volume.Any ideas?
