comment Server 2012 Data Deduplication Skipping Replica VHDs
Thank you! Yeah the ones I am having trouble with are the same sizes (on disk and actual) - however I copied a copy of a vhd from a server that is on there (this is not a replica vhd) and it was 260 gigs and it worked straight away when running a dedupe job, shrunk incredibly. I wonder if Replica puts something into the vhd that is causing the deduplication service to skip it.

These files have not been written to in a few days and I have set the minimum days to 0 and it will still skip the VHDs. The hosts we are using have 10 3 terabyte drives in raid 10 (hardware) w/ 128 gb ddr3 memory and dual e5-2690 processors in addition to dual 10 gbps fiber optic nics with 10 gbps down/up internet connection. I will research some software regarding online deduplication which is new and interesting to me. Thank you for letting me know!

Hello, Thank you for your reply! I am currently running an optimization on all the VHDs that I'm having trouble with and hopefully that will help. I see what you mean, and most of the changes that are made are every 5 minutes but there are few. I have reconfigured the sync to be manual, so I can do it once a week which would be fine for our purposes. The problem I'm having at the moment is I have 20+ VHDs that have been removed from their Replica folder in addition to turning off resync in the Hyper-V host server.
