Hi,

I'm going to use Dedupe store to do some backing up.

To effectively do my backups I need to understand the flow of Duplicate backup ie.. 1st backup is to de-duplication store and then Duplicated to the tape.

Does the Duplicate job run using the source or does it use the Dedupe store to get the backup data to the tapes?

Thanks in advance

The duplicate job to tape will duplicate the backup set that is already in the dedup store.  Note that the duplication will be slow because the data needs to be hydrated, i.e. turned back to its original form.
