In this segment, Curtis begins by defining and explaining deduplication. He expands on this with an explanation of file-level and subfile-level deduplication and how subfile-level deduplication makes true disk backup feasible. The segment ends with a discussion about types of data that do and don't deduplicate well and deduplication best practices are also outlined.
