Tip of the Day: Deduplication Perquisites

Today’s Tip…

While the deduplication feature was designed to support minimal configurations such as a single processor system with 4 GB of RAM, some additional requirements must be met…

  • WS2012 or WS2012R2 (No dedupping on Win8 client)
  • Data drives only (no system/boot volumes)
  • Locally attached storage (no mapped drives)
  • NTFS only (will not work with ReFS or any type of FAT)
