About user-directed archive restrictions
(NTFS5 and later)
On Microsoft Windows
systems that use file system NTFS 5.0 and later, mount point and
Single Instance Store (SIS) restrictions apply.
Mount point restrictions
NetBackup does not enter
mount points it may encounter during an archive. Instead, the mount
point is unmounted and the empty directory (folder) is deleted. If
an archive operation starts inside a mounted volume (not at the
root), the target items are removed.
For example, assume that
MountPoint is a volume mount point and d2 is an object in the
mounted volume (c:\d1\MountPoint\d2).
Depending on what is archived, the following may
If c:\d1 is archived, MountPoint is unmounted and
removed along with any other objects in c:\d1. Nothing in the
mounted volume is deleted.
If c:\d1\MountPoint\d2 is archived,
c:\d1\MountPoint\d2 and any non-mount point children of d2 are
Single Instance Store (SIS) restrictions
NetBackup does not delete
any items in the Common SIS volumes. If it is requested, links can
be deleted and the SIS manager determines whether to delete the
corresponding Common Store items.
