So to solve this we need to get deep down in the user profiles. What is really happening behind the scenes? Every time the DPM server console opens the file “Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 Data Protection Manager” that is located in the Roaming AppData catalogue of your profile is verified. If that file is corrupt or faulty it needs to be reinitialized.
This is done via the simple trick of deleting the file and restarting the DPM server console.
The file location is “C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\MMC” and keep in mind to view “Hidden Items” otherwise the AppData catalogue will not show up.
