Duplication Warnings / Duplication Disabled

Question

Hi, I have duplication disabled under Pool file duplication, but I still see duplicated content taking up space. Also, this screenshot shows the folder duplication is not disabled... it says 'inherit'. I'm not sure whether or not that means Enabled or Disabled?.

 

Clicking on the 'change duplication' button doesn't seem to do anything.

You'll want to check out this: 

That said, if you're using a lot of reparse points on the pool, then this may be used in the metadata folder on the pool.  

Also, you can run: 
 

dpcmd set-duplication-recursive P:\ 1 *

And that should forcibly set the duplication level to "unduplicated".

Doesn;t the x1+ in the screenshot for the Folder Duplication window (to the right of the OP) show that there is at least one folders for which duplication is set? Simply expand the DrivePool folder and check which folder is the culprit, no?

No other folders within T:\ that show a x1+? If there is/are, then you may need to expand some more until you found them.

That works too.  But..

That works better.  No chance of missing a folder or file on a drive accidentally, and it's *way* faster.

Only a folder called METADATA is marked as duplicated.

 

So then, it's the StableBit DrivePool metadata that is duplicated then.  This ... is standard, and it's hard coded to x3 duplication, actually.

We don't store a lot of information in this folder. But reparse point info IS stored here (junctions, symblinks, etc).  So if you're using a lot of them on the pool, then that would by whey you're seeing this behavior.  And in this case, you don't want to mess with this folder.
