DPM 2010 Question

Hi Experts,

I'm trying to figure out DPM 2010 and thwe way it's configured in the company i work for.
Can someone explain the following protection group configuration;

Short-Term protection

To Disk
1 Day retention range
File recovery points 2:00 everyday
Application recovery points 2:30 everyday

Long-Term protection

To Tape
1 month retention range
            -      Daily (7:00) for the last 1 week
            -      Weekly (sat 7:00) for the last 4 weeks
Drives allocated 1

The group contains 4 servers, all configured to backup the System State and Bare Metal Recovery.

What do file and application recovery points mean? And why is long-term protection configured to run daily and weekly? Is this configuration ok, or should i configure it otherwise?

Since I can't see your full configuration to give you specific examples, you may want to take a look at this forum post which explains things fairly well:

Thanks. That's a good forum post. I understand it quiet well now. I also found some white papers with everything explained in detail.
