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 ?
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.
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
