Huge snapshot on boot volume of Windows 2012 R2 with deduplication

Recommended Posts

How would I do the steps outlined in this KB (http://www.retrospect.com/en/support/kb/windows-server-2012-data-deduplication) on my Mac server running retrospect 11?  I am running into this exact problem, trying to backup the C:\ of a Windows 2012 R2 server that has data deduplication on it's D:\ -  but the 'secret preferences' on the mac version of Retrospect don't have the "Open File Backup" or "Excluded Writer List" - or I'm just missing it.

I am able to backup the volume that has deduplication just fine - but the boot volume (as described in the KB) is the one that retrospect generates a huge snapshot.


Can somebody explain to me how I can fix this?
