I was wondering if anyone has more insight regarding which option is better for a Server 2016 dedup repository. Up until now I used General purpose file server, but now I see another option called Virtualized Backup Server. From what I read it is optimized for HyperV VMs using a VHD as repo residing on a the dedup volume.
Will this be a better option than General Purpose File Server?

Yes, this option is better. For reference... This is what it means in terms of settings:
* Priority optimization
* Default optimization policy: Minimum file age = 0 days / Optimize in-use files = Yes / Optimize partial files = No
* "Under-the-hood" tweaks for interop with virtualized backup type of solutions.
I discussed this with MSFT 2 weeks ago with the responsible PM for it, and he confirmed that those under-the-hood tweaks are generic and aimed at everyone and not at their backup solution alone.
Hope it helps
