MSDP deduplication pool disk


we are using a NBU server with a deduplication pool located on D:\

can we create an ISO folder D:\ISO and dump all big files there that are infrequently accessed ? 

Also, is it supported by Veritas ?

thanks !

No.. Please Dont do that ... ultimately, you would be loosing usable space on Dedup Pool.

Any such fragmentation can cause serious performance issues to Dedup Engine.


Re: MSDP deduplication pool disk

Theoritically , this should not cause issues

The Actual Work goes on inside the subfolders.

I dont think there will be any performance issues.

Assuming you know that you will be taking up space that would have been used for backups.

I assume you have a large space and you are thinking to utilise it and save some space on the C Drive Smiley Happy
