After performing a client-side deduplication operation, followed by an optimized duplicate operation to a deduplication folder, the object NULL-SERVER may show up in the Backup / Restore dialogs. The backup sets resulting from this set can not be restored.

- Set copy the resulting backup set from step 1 to another deduplication folder or a PureDisk device.
