DPM Replica volume shrink.

Our DPM has started throwing DPM Storage usage warning that allocated/used replica size has grown more than 75TB, DPM official support replica size of 75 TB.

To check further I fetched replica usage report and found many of replica volumes are not using maximum of size allocated to them. For ex - a data source of a protected SQL database - replica volume is allocated 14TB and used is only 4TB.

I want to shrink such replica volumes but there's no any documentation available for latest DPM version 2019 MBS.

Thanks
Vijay

This new Microsoft Q&A forums is so tedious, I cant tag or find anything related to SCDPM, Microsoft Data Protection Manager, can someone please move this to relevant forums of DPM ?

Unfortunately there is no tag for DPM, this has been given as a feedback and I think they will add it later.

Hi @VijayRana-0164,

It is no longer possible to shrink replica volumes in newer DPM versions.
