NTFS compression on drivepool?

Question

Hi.

I am using stablebit drivepool for my NAS/DVR server(2x8TB HDDs and 512GB SSD). All HDDs and SSD are NTFS.

Main data of the system is m2ts/mp4, but I want to compress data on NAS folders.

In this case, can I press "compress this drive to save disk space" on "drivepool"ed disk? or should I perform this on each drives?

 

Thank you

I don't think that we actually support the compression on the pool, because of how it works. 

Also, what OS are you using specifically?  
The reason that I ask, is that the server OS' actually have a "data deduplication" feature that may be helpful here.
