Filesystem Full and Incremental backup of Microsoft Data Deduplication file systems

0 Votes

Upon completion of a filesystem Full backup of a Windows volume with deduplication enabled the following Incremental backup results in a backup of already backed up files.  The resulting Incremental backup is approximately the same size as the Full backup.

@Ernie Burns 
the intention is to provide full and incremental like with standard NTFS. This sounds like a bug. Please open a support request.
