    Just curious on what other users run for dedupe setting of Do not Deduplicate against objects older than 90 days. ?

    For me its been just over 90 days (default) since I created the store and I couldn't figure out why my dedupe jobs were so big now. I'm guessing that blocks/objects are being replaced since they are older than 90 days.

    Problem I have is now its consuming a ton of extra disk space. Not sure when the 'old' blocks get aged? Would they age as they are replaced or as the job they are part of age or until all jobs containing that block have run?

    Anyone else have this experience?

    Yeah the numbers align resonable well so I suspect that is what is going on. Does anyone run their disk based dedupe so it doesn't refresh the stored deduped blocks?
