The following are the methods of deduplication supported:

          Intelligent deduplication of files

  • Dedupe the entire file for the very first time, that is the very first backup revision of the file will be deduped.
  • If the file changes, then the backup modality automatically switches to “delta mode” from “dedupe mode” for that file, that is, delta will be applied from second revision of the backup file on a particular computer.

           Content aware deduplication of PST

Hello Santosh,

I was keen to understand how does the deduplication in DLO works? is it similar to Backup Exec De-dupe in terms of functionality or is it different?


Kind Regards,
