You don't need anymore to be part of Microsoft Insider Program for this build.So just skip text above until PS module usage here.You will find the deduplication package for build 14291.1001 here (md5 : b150cd2fe60e314e24cedeafeb6f1f42).To install deduplication feature on your Windows 10 computer, you will just need to launch file as administrator.it did it’s job though – which was to provide more space for not often accessed things. so, here’s a primer on getting all the deduplication commands: Command Type Name Module Name ----------- ---- ---------- Function Disable-Dedup Volume Deduplication Function Enable-Dedup Volume Deduplication Function Expand-Dedup File Deduplication Function Get-Dedup Job Deduplication Function Get-Dedup Metadata Deduplication Function Get-Dedup Schedule Deduplication Function Get-Dedup Status Deduplication Function Get-Dedup Volume Deduplication Function Measure-Dedup File Metadata Deduplication Function New-Dedup Schedule Deduplication Function Remove-Dedup Schedule Deduplication Function Set-Dedup Schedule Deduplication Function Set-Dedup Volume Deduplication Function Start-Dedup Job Deduplication Function Stop-Dedup Job Deduplication Function Update-Dedup Status Deduplication the requirements fell apart on the first bullet for me.
Note that I can only build this package if I have the linked Windows Server 2016 build, so if you need a special package for a build of Windows 10 contact me with the link or the of the appropriate Windows Server 2016 build.i ended up replacing the optical drive with a secondary hdd.it runs out of the optical chassis so it spins slower. in case you didn’t know you could, windows 8.1 will support deduplication. once you install it and enable the features, you need to get into powershell to turn stuff on.All of your files still live on that disk or volume, happily compressed in their Optimized state and sitting snuggled up to their brethren.However, until you ‘Unoptimize’ them, or connect the disk to a system with Windows Server Deduplication enabled, you cannot access any items bigger than 32KB (the minimum size for block level dedupe).
