Hi,

I have come across a strange issue this morning with my DPM 2010 Server.

I use this to backup my Exchange 2010 environment. The retention range is set to 30 days which is fine but I have come in this morning and it seems the disks are full.

It looks like DPM has kept all of the data on there from day 1 of it running even though its only keeping a months worth of recovery points that I can restore back to.

My question is as follows,

Is there anyway of removing the old replicas or how can I set DPM to overwrite the old replicas?

Thanks,

Inf

Hi,

Thank you.

This does help in the mean time but do you know if it is possible to set DPM to overwrite the old replicas?

I have 4 Hard Drive Arrays which each have 18TB on them.

I shouldn't be running out of space and it looks like to me the replicas are not being overwritten they are just being appended to.
