I'm trialing B&R v8, and I have a Windows 2012 R2 VM as my B&R server & repository.
I've run backups of the same VMs to a) a standard NTFS volume and b) a deduped NTFS volume. Oddly I'm finding that the dedupe restores (hotadd) run at least as quick as the non-deduped. Actually, faster! Struggling to explain this. Anyone got any ideas?
