Deduplication

Post by tbalci »

Hi Team,

I don't know if that has been requested before, so apologies if it was.

Is it possible to introduce deduplication to save backup image space? Currently Backup4all saves space just by zip compression, and the savings can vary according to the files backed up. However, having deduplication will help a lot in terms of space savings on the backup target independent of the file types backed up. It will also help with considerable savings on the cloud destinations both in terms of data storage and data transfer.

I know that this is a significant effort for the development teams, but I believe it is a feature that will skyrocket Backup4all to a different level in terms of backup software.

Any ideas?
Cheers

Hi,

That feature is already on our Wishlist.
I cannot tell if/when it will be implemented.
