Hi, 

would like to know is there any best practices if we enable deduplication on backup repository on windows server? are there any benefits if we store data into \windows server and run deduplication on it? 

do you have any best practices for this? thanks.

Hello Leezy,

We recommend using NAKIVO only deduplication method as Windows and NAKIVO working simultaneously could cause an error.

Please learn more here: https://helpcenter.nakivo.com/display/KB/File+and+Object+Recovery:+Windows+Server+with+Deduplication

Should you need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

if any of you guys planning to use dedupe on windows server 2019, here is some results i am getting during the backup. 

i have configure my server to backup without compression and dedupe enable, and with dedupe appliance option enable. here is some interesting results to share.

not sure is this the best result i can get on windows server deuplication comparing it to built in dedupe. both runs using post processing deduplication.

Hello @Leezy,

Please clarify if you have enabled deduplication only in the NAKIVO repository for a test run. Are these screenshots from different runs or it is the same deduplication configuration? Could you please clarify the test that you have run in detail.

We did not run any deep tests with this configuration and comparing different types of deduplication.

i did not enable the compression and dedupe on the NBR. we only configure the windows server with dedupe on the following volume. it does looks food on the result. only different is that we do not have the option do continues backup.
