Use this tab to establish the options for deduplication on the subclient.

Enable Deduplication

Use this option to enable or disable deduplication for the subclient.

When enabled, you can choose to generate the signature (a component of deduplication) on the client or on the MediaAgent computer.


  • The deduplication is supported on disk storage devices. Therefore, the deduplication options are applicable only if the subclient is associated with a storage policy containing disk storage.
  • For source-side deduplication, the signature generation always occurs on the client.
