I wear many hats at my workplace.

Primarily a Database Developer, but also programmer, web designer, DBA, sysadmin, and general office bitch.

I work for a small custom software house in Sydney, Australia. We use all manner of tools - but mainly MSSQL and a Rapid Application Tool called eDeveloper uniPaaS Magic XPA.

@AshleySteel I don't really blog any more. Used to once upon a time. The whole thing basically came down to me not understanding how Windows Server dedupe works...

Thanks for the answer. Your answer mirrors my own findings. I had some misunderstandings about dedupe, and my testing methodology was flawed.

@yagmoth555 No good news. I changed to only run on background optimisation, and now I'm getting 0% dedupe ratio. So I'm still just experimenting.

@MikeAWood - I didn't try that. I've since nuked that drive and re-created it with different dedupe settings, so I'll see what happens tonight when another dump runs

They are binary files, but as I've already mentioned whatever is in them is totally corrupted. I did not actually check the contents in a hex editor, and I've since nuked that drive and recreated it with different dedupe parameters, to see what happens tonight.

@MikeAWood it de-duped totally different database backups to 0 bytes as well, which is most certainly wrong. One of the things I wanted the dedupe for is, as you've pointed out, 90% of the backups from night to night are identical.

comment ASA is not forwarding packets to egress interface
Good point. I do not keep a history of the CPU usage. It's only a 20Mbps link though, so it's unlikely to be saturating the CPU.
