Deduplication Tuning for Block Size

  • To get higher deduplication reductions for smaller deduplication block size, disable the data compression options.

    This causes first full backup to increase in size due to no compression, but subsequent backups reduce as expected.

    For instructions, see Modifying Software Compression on a Subclient or Instance.

  • This is applicable for data sets that compress > 50%, this occurs for databases agents and NDMP.
