Topic:
Bare Metal Recovery "BMR" via Veeam Recovery USB media

Background Information:
Running free edition of VEB [now VAW] on PC running Windows Server 2012 R2 w/ DeDuplication used on all locally attached volumes [all SATA drives]

Question:
Can Veeam Bootable Recovery Media perform bare metal restore from locally attached volumes [all SATA drives] but that local volume were itself deduped by Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 DeDupe?

(Can Veeam Bootable Recovery Media re-hydrate data from a volume that has been DeDuplicated in Windows Server 2012 R2 native DeDuplication functionality?)

Hello Hari,

No, Veeam Recovery Media does not have deduplication drivers included. You need to mount this volumes to the Windows server (same version of dedup drivers) and then point recovery media to this server (via Veeam B&R repository or File Share destination).
