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.

It entirely depends on your operating system. I suggest you start with telling us that.

comment extreme ping latency in WDS network
Thats the great thing about wireless. It allows anyone in your vacinity to ruin your bandwidth and latency! I'd be doing a site survey scan and looking at the cahnnels your APs are on, and moving them to less-congested channels if you can.

@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.
