lost disk in DPM 2012, replaced volume and cannot resume disk backups

Hello,

We had a disk die in a completely unrecoverable state and DPM 2012 was using it for Exchange disk replicas. I replaced the disk and added it back into DPM. It appears as healthy, but we can't simply resume backups there. My question is, would I do best to stop protection for this group and remake it, or is there a better way that keeps the protection group as-is?

Thanks for your thoughts!

I read online that running a dpmsync -sync command followed by dpmsync -reallocatereplica would do the trick, but when I do that I am seeing an error "The allocation of disk space for storage pool volumes failed because there is not enough unallocated disk space in the storage pool". So I am guessing that stopping protection and re-adding the mailboxes under a new protection group is my only option?

When you replaced the disk did you remove the old one from the DPM storage pool?
