Greetings from the DPM Team !!!
We conceptualized DPM 7 years ago with a mission to offer Best Data Protection for Microsoft applications. Our goal has been to offer: Rapid and Reliable Recovery, Ease of Use, and Lowest TCO for Microsoft workloads, to all our customers.
DPM 2010 (a.k.a. DPM V3) released earlier this month. With its strong feature-set and with significant improvements in reliability, manageability and scalability, DPM 2010 is receiving positive reviews from you - all our customers. Thanks for sharing the feedback.

Documentation, Documentation, Documentation I like the product but since I started using DPM 2007, you can only find answers from blogs, and tech postings. I am currently battling a sharepoint protection group that will not create a catalog. The scarce cryptic examples in the management shell are terrible! I am about to dump this product as a matter of principle.
Ok I can fill this in for ya.
I'm working on shrepoint 2007 recovery with DPM 2010. I have some object reference problems and i can avoid them by recovering files appart from forms in a document library.
It could be handy if one can select multiple files to restore instead of a whole folder including sub-folders. (I dont want the subfolders)
In order for DPM to replace our current Enterprise Backup solution it will need:
The ability to backup directly to tape - I don't have an unlimited budget for disk; especially for long term data retention. Tape library support, with sharing between DPM servers would also be helpful.
It needs support for a wider range of platforms, including VMS, VMware, Solaris, Redhat, and of course all the currently supported Windows platforms.
CDP is great for Databases, but for everything else I just want a single daily point in time recovery point.
