Hello ,

Im trying DPM 2012 R2 and i have a question about the storage that a protection group takes from my storage pool ,

Im backing up some Virtual machines on a hyper-v cluster and i choose a VM . In the options of the protection group i choose retention range 1 date and in express full backup i choose 6.00AM everyday. In the next tab there is the review of the space allocation . I want to ask what is the co-locate data in DPM Storage Pool . If i enable it then the disk allocation of the VM increases about 200-300 GB.

Thanks

Essentially it enables multiple protected sources to be co-located in/on the same replica & recovery volume pair in DPM. See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff399498.aspx for more info.
