How does Data Protection Manager 2016 save and restore data?

on the DPM server. But administrators have flexibility to put those backups on storage that is located — and partitioned — elsewhere.

To get started, IT administrators install a DPM agent on every computer to protect, then add that machine to a protection group in DPM. A protection group is a collection of computers that all share the same protection settings or configurations, such as the group name, protection policy, disk target and replica method.

After the agent installation and configuration process, DPM produces a replica for every protection group member, which can include volumes, shares, folders, Exchange storage groups and SQL Server databases. System Center Data Protection Manager 2016 builds replicas in a provisioned storage pool.

After DPM generates the initial replicas, its agents track changes to the protected data and send that information to the DPM server. DPM will then use the change journal to update the file data replicas at the intervals specified by the configuration. During synchronization, any changes are sent to the DPM server, which applies them to the replica.

DPM also periodically checks the replica for consistency with block-level verification and corrects any problems in the replica. Administrators can set recovery points for a protection group member to create multiple recoverable versions for each backup.

Application data backups require additional planning

Application data protection can vary based on the application and the selected backup type. Administrators need to be aware that certain applications do not support every DPM backup type. For example, Microsoft Virtual Server and some SQL Server databases do not support incremental backups.

Administrators need to be aware that certain applications do not support every DPM backup type.

For a synchronization job, System Center Data Protection Manager 2016 tracks application data changes and moves them to the DPM server, similar to an incremental backup. Updates are combined with the base replica to form the complete backup.

For an express full backup job, System Center Data Protection Manager 2016 uses a complete Volume Shadow Copy Service snapshot, but transfers only changed blocks to the DPM server. Each full backup creates a recovery point for the application’s data.

Generally, incremental synchronizations are faster to backup but can take longer to restore. To balance the time needed to restore content, DPM will periodically create full backups to integrate any collected changes, which speeds up a recovery. DPM can support up to 64 recovery points for each member of a protection group. However, DPM can also support up to 448 full backups and 96 incremental backups for each full backup.

The DPM recovery process is straightforward regardless of the backup type or target. Administrators select the desired recovery point with the Recovery Wizard in the DPM Administrator Console. DPM will restore the data from that point to the desired target or destination. The Recovery Wizard will denote the location and availability of the backup media. If the backup media — such as tape — is not available, the restoration process will fail.

It was originally purchased from Currys on 25th November and the buyer tried to return it but Currys refused to take it back as the seal had been broken. It has not been used and looks perfect to me. I would be content to accept £40 if collected.

Windows 10 Tip: Get started with the Mixed Reality Viewer app

As part of our mission to bring 3D and mixed reality to everyone, we launched Mixed Reality Viewer with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update in October.  With Mixed Reality Viewer, you can see 3D objects – either from the Remix3D.com community or your own creation from Paint 3D – mixed into your actual surroundings through your PC’s camera.  It’s easy and fun, and all you need to get started is a device with a camera running the latest Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.
With the Mixed Reality Viewer, you can experience the power of 3D and mixed reality, no headset required.
Mixed Reality Viewer is a perfect tool when you need to visualize space and dimension, experience something up close, or when you just want to inject some fun into your photos. Whether it’s a friend’s birthday and you want a photo of them alongside a personalized 3D birthday cake, or you’re a home decorator helping a client to visualize what a couch would look like in their living room, or a teacher demonstrating  to students the size and scale of the Mars Rover, this application will help you bring all your ideas to life! Use the app to just play and learn by overlaying 3D objects in your world or snap a photo to save it as a memory and share with friends – read on to learn how.
You have a couple ways to get started:
To get started, head to the Mixed Reality Viewer app, free with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. You’ll find a 3D character already created for you, or click the Remix 3D button to search the extensive 3D catalogue to browse for inspiration. Next, Select the Mixed reality button and your computer’s camera will turn on.  Tap the screen to indicate where you’d like to place your object.
And just like that, your 3D creation is in your real world and you’re experiencing mixed reality. From there, you can rotate the 3D object, zoom in, zoom out and capture the image in a photo.

You can also experience mixed reality from within the Paint 3D application. Simply create something in Paint 3D or pull in a creation from Remix 3D and then select Mixed reality to view it in your real world.

Mixed Reality Viewer is one of the multiple ways we’re empowering people to blend their physical and digital worlds to create, play and learn in new dimensions. We’re so inspired and excited by what we’ve seen people do with the Mixed Reality Viewer already – can’t wait to see more!  If you want to experience Mixed Reality Viewer, and you don’t have the Fall Creators Update yet, please visit this blog post to learn how to get it!
