OSSV 3.0.1, Server 2012 Deduplication

Hi All,

I'm experiencing incredibly slow backups using OSSV 3.0.1 on our Server 2012R2 Server.

 

On the server we have a 2TB volume and we have native Server 2012 deduplication enabled currently saving 600GB

 

MY question: Is OSSV 3.0.1 windows dedupe aware?

 

If not I'm suspecting that for each file OSSV is backuping up its having to rehydrate the file before backing it up, to give you an idea in 1 hour I managed to backup a massive 300mb of this 2TB volume...

 

Cheers

 

Rob
