    One of the biggest improvements I have seen was doing automatic updates. XP SP3 needs about 100 I think now that can take hours with a mechanical drive. The SSD did it in about 6 minutes!

    I've got an 80Gb Intel x25-m in my home PC and I'd echo the above. Once you've had one there's no going back to HDD's as a boot/OS drive!

    DPM 2010 does not require 2008 R2 I thought?

    I have DPM 2010 and I have to say some points are accurate (the pre-reqs are a pain) but after getting it setup I think its brilliant and we came from BE previously. To buy proper lics for BE we were looking at over £4K just for the essentials, DPM is about £80 per year and £20 per hardware agent (and anything on that hardware be it hyper-v etc) if I recall.

    Seeing the files I dont find an issue at all tbh, DPM stores the backups in partitions and snapshots only changes to save large amounts of space. I believe you can get access if needed but its not advised or needed really.

    I was looking into DPM 2010 instead of upgrading to Backup exec 2010. Might not bother now though. Does backup exec 2010 have CPS on it?

    Does DPM handle tape changers ok (yeah old school I know...)
    DPM 2007 made real hashups with our's and we can only use it for disk-disk.

    Have to use bacula for tape.

    DPM uses Microsoft's Shadow Copy technology (like System Restore does in Windows) so this is probably why you can't see the files. It also stores only the bytes that have changed, so even if you could see the files they wouldn't be of much of use to you. How does BackupExec deal with the de-duplication of data if it stores everything in a BKF?

    Nice review. I have been struggling to install DPM 2010 too. The first hurdle was I had no Servers with 2008 R2 on. Installed that on a test box fine.

    Next problem our domain was still at the windows 2000 functional level (DPM 2010 requires 2003 func level at least)
    Still didn't work i think because it had a partially uninstalled instance of sql. I'm going to rebuild my 2008 R2 server when i get time.

    The reason I looked into DPM was because it was so cheap and makes use of the previous version client so users can restore files themselves. Also it does de-duplication and i've always hated the Veritas interface.

    Well, this book is becoming quite a chore. I was initially drawn to the book because of large number of its quotes sprinkled throughout the net.

    I find the characters cold and one dimensional. The characters seem to be a vehicle for Rand's political views, which on the face of it seem to have some merit, but recent events have proven laissez faire market forces immoral and prone to implode.

    I haven't even got to John Galt yet.


    I've started on Watership Down. I might return to Atlas Shrugged, but not before I finish WD.

    I feel your frustration.

    I bought an egg & cheese pita and find a hand full of shredded lettuce, onion & cabbage underneath the payload - I could have crushed a grape I was so angry.
