Adding a deduplication storage folder

A deduplication storage folder is a disk-based backup folder that you can use as a destination for backup jobs. You can add only one deduplication storage folder on a media server.

Note:

To add a deduplication storage folder to a storage array, use the Storage Array Configuration Wizard.

See About using the Storage Array Configuration Wizard.

To add a deduplication storage folder

  3. On the Configure Devices Assistant dialog box, under Deduplication Option, click Deduplication Storage Folder.

  4. If the Deduplication Storage Folder Configuration dialog box appears, click Add a Deduplication Storage Folder.

    This step does not apply if this is the first deduplication storage folder. The Deduplication Storage Folder Configuration dialog box appears only if a deduplication storage folder already exists on another media server.

  8. Click OK.

  9. Restart the Backup Exec services on the media servers that you selected in step 7.
