BackupAssist and Windows 2012 deduplicated volume

Hi everybody,

I'm currently using BA to backup files on a W2012 deduplicated volume as a target.
As I can see, BA calculate the free size by subtracting the saved data size (non duplicated) to the total volume size.
Would it be possible to get the real free size from the system ?

Many thanks.

Thank for this.

I have another problem related to this one : if I backup system state on this deduplicated volume, BA includes the folder "System Volume Information", containing the chunks of the deduplicated files, which is not so good, and not what I want !
Would it be possible to select what is saved in system state, or to include this scénario (= backup on W2012 deduplicated targets) in future releases ?

Best regards.
