Hello Commvault Community,
I have questions for you about the operation of the Commvault Deduplication mechanism on the server (Windows Server 2012) where the Windows Deduplication mechanism is also working.
I realize that it is not recommended to use both mechanisms at the same time.
My guess is that if files are deduplicated by Windows Deduplication then when backed up by Commvault they are deduplicated again by Commvault's Deduplication mechanism. If not, please explain to me what it looks like.
What if the Client wants to use the Restore jobs to recover such deduplicated (possibly double files)? Are they recoverable or if there are problems and you find that the files are unrecoverable.
Another question, what in the case of archiving on data deduplicated by Windows Deduplication, will they be able to be re-duplicated and later archived by Commvault? Can only new files that are not deduplicated by Windows Deduplication be backed up? From the Commvault archiving documentation I found information that deduplicated files by Microsoft cannot be archived, but can they somehow be reduplicated and archived by Commvault?
Windows File System Archiving
If I have described something vaguely, please let me know.
Please help answer these questions.
Thank you for your help.
