Our very own Shane Brasher just released a new video, this one covering the steps to perform a BMR (bare metal restore) by way of DPM 2010 should you experience a catastrophic failure of a Windows Server 2008 computer. You can view it here below or at the link here.

Sorry folks, I couldn't bare to watch any more after 5 minutes of this. If Microsoft wants to learn how to do decent videos, go take a look at CBT Nuggets (no, I don't work for them). Seriously, this video is flawed, was poorly prepared, is too long and has little explanation of what is going on. And by the way, the amount of data transferred is not a "data rate".
Really sorry to see such a poor quality video come out of Technet. No wonder people don't want to use DPM - it's a great product that is so poorly documented!
