Could you please provide a bit more detail about what we are looking at?
I assume this is Win 2012 storage volume.. but is it local, on SAN/NAS, ...

other config details?

Another question....Ok, so dedupe gives 87% space savings, but what does compression on non-deduped volume show?

I don't know what compression alone would yield. But I have to think it would be not nearly as nice as this

Any ideas on how "dedupe friendly" the dedupe friendly compression setting is?

Would it be better to just have it turned off?
