Hide dedup savings in windows explorer

Hello,

 

we are using ontap 9.5 and provide cifs shares to windows computers.

I want the users to see the real data usage of their files without deduplication. For example:

 

The user is using 10 tb of data and deduplication reduces this to 8 tb. The volume in this example has the size of 9 tb.

So in windows explorer the user can see the mounted share as a 9 tb volume and 8 tb used space. But he should see the full 10 tb of his data as used storage.

 

Is there any option or possibility to show him the used data in windows explorer?

 

Thanks.

Currently there is no way to export the space savings information to clients. This might be an opportunity for an RFE.
