  • Is it possible to add Data Deduplication on the File Server, Share?

    Does anyone have an answer to this?

    - when using Server 2019 and ReFS

    - when using Server 2012/2016 and NTFS

  • Hi Bryan5411,

    I have now carried out several test series and implementations with Data Deduplication and FSLogix Container Store. The last one was with almost 2000 office containers. Data dedup did not result in any performance loss or issues and saved 70% of the storage space. It should be noted that only unmounted containers can be optimized by data dedup and if there are ost files in this container, the ost files cannot be optimized. The rest of the content of the container can still be optimized.

    And always remember to use shrink scripts to do the housekeeping.
