This segment begins with an explanation of how long to store backups to get the maximum benefit of deduplication, and then discusses the appropriate frequency of full backups. Curtis follows this up with some important information about why you need to turn off compression before deduping data, then goes on to discuss the merits of testing dedupe products before buying. He then goes on to explain why deduplication should have little to no impact on restores and why.
