Description

The Set-DedupVolume cmdlet changes data deduplication settings on one or more volumes.

Examples

Example 1: Set the exclude folders on a volume

PS C:\>Set-DedupVolume -Volume F: -ExcludeFolder F:\temp,F:\SQL

This command sets the root folders under which all files are skipped during data deduplication. The ExcludeFolder parameter specifies that the data deduplication engine processes the files in all of the folders on volume F: except for files in the Temp folder and the SQL folder.

Example 2: Set the minimum file age on a volume

PS C:\>Set-DedupVolume -Volume E: -MinimumFileAgeDays 10

This command sets the number of days since users have accessed a file before the deduplication engine optimizes the file. The MinimumFileAgeDays parameter specifies that the data deduplication engine processes the files in all of the folders on volume E: that were not accessed in the last 10 days.

Example 3: Set the chunk redundancy threshold on a volume

PS C:\>Set-DedupVolume -Volume D: -MinimumFileAgeDays 15 -ChunkRedundancyThreshold 50

This command sets the number of identical chunks of data that the deduplication engine encounters during deduplication before the server creates a redundant copy of the data chunk. The MinimumFileAgeDays parameter specifies that the data deduplication engine processes the files in all of the folders on volume D: that were not accessed in the last 15 days. The ChunkRedundancyThreshold parameter specifies that if the data deduplication engine discovers 50 chunks of identical data, it makes one redundant copy as a safeguard.

Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet.

For more information about Windows PowerShell background jobs, see about_Jobs.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ChunkRedundancyThreshold

Specifies the number of identical chunks of data that the deduplication engine encounters before the server creates a redundant copy of the data chunk. This increases the reliability of the server by adding redundancy to the most referenced chunks of data.

Deduplication detects corruptions and the deduplication scrubbing job restores the corrupted chunks from a redundant copy, if it is available. The default value is 100. The minimum value that you can set is 20. A low value for the ChunkRedundancyThreshold parameter reduces the effectiveness of data deduplication by creating more redundant copies of a chunk, and consumes more memory and disk space.

Type:UInt32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-CimSession

Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet.

Type:CimSession[]
Aliases:Session
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ExcludeFileType

Specifies an array of extension types that the deduplication engine excludes from data deduplication and optimization. Specify comma-separated values that are not preceded with a period (.). When you change this setting, you override the existing values.

Type:String[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ExcludeFolder

Specifies an array of names of root folders under which the deduplication engine excludes files from data deduplication and optimization. Full paths are accepted, however mount points are ignored since the mount point can change after configuration. When you change this setting, you override the existing values.

Type:String[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InputObject

Specifies the input to this cmdlet. You can use this parameter, or you can pipe the input to this cmdlet.

Type:CimInstance[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-MinimumFileAgeDays

Specifies a number of days. The deduplication engine optimizes files that users have not accessed in the number of days that you specify. If the last access time is not available, then the deduplication engine uses the last modified time.

Type:UInt32
Aliases:MinimumFileAge
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-MinimumFileSize

Specifies the minimum size threshold, in bytes, for files that are optimized. The deduplication engine does not optimize files that do not meet the minimum threshold.

Type:UInt32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-NoCompress

Indicates whether or not the server compresses data after deduplication. Compression uses more processor cycles but provides additional space savings.

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-NoCompressionFileType

Specifies an array of file types that the deduplication engine excludes from compression. These file types are deduplicated but not compressed, typically because the file format is already compressed. Specify comma-separated values that are not preceded with a period (.). When you change this setting, you override the existing values.

Type:String[]
Position:Named
Default value:Video files, previously compressed files, all Microsoft Office 2007 files. These include, but are not limited to: aac|aif|aiff|asf|asx|au|avi|flac|jpeg|m3u|mid|midi|mov|mp1|mp2|mp3|mp4|mpa|mpe|mpeg|mpeg2|mpeg3|mpg|ogg|qt|qtw|ram|rm|rmi|rmvb|snd|swf|vob|wav|wax|wma|wmv|wvx|accdb|accde|accdr|accdt|docm|docx|dotm|dotx|pptm|potm|potx|ppam|ppsx|pptx|sldx|sldm|thmx|xlsx|xlsm|xltx|xltm|xlsb|xlam|xll|ace|arc|arj|bhx|b2|cab|gz|gzip|hpk|hqx|jar|lha|lzh|lzx|pak|pit|rar|sea|sit|sqz|tgz|uu|uue|z|zip|zoo
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-PassThru

Returns an object representing the item with which you are working. By default, this cmdlet does not generate any output.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Type:Int32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Verify

Indicates whether or not the deduplication engine performs a byte-for-byte verification for each duplicate chunk that optimization creates, rather than relying on a cryptographically strong hash. We do not recommend that you use this parameter. Setting this parameter to $True can degrade optimization performance.

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Volume

Specifies an array of system volumes. Specify one or more volume IDs, drive letters (such as D:), or volume GUID pathnames (using the form \\?\Volume{{GUID}}\). Separate multiple volumes with a comma.

Type:String[]
Aliases:Path, Name
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
