    Does anyone know when/if Commvault will support Windows Optimized (SiS enabled) volumes? Currently the full size of my backups count against my CLA rather than the optimized/deduplicated volume amount. Works out to be a considerable sum when you look at it vs the deduplicated size.

    I don't think they will ever count deduplicated instead of real amount of data.

    You must be able to restore all your data to other system where there is no deduplication involved, or to tapes or other media.

    Even though you use deduplication I believe it is still fair to use the actual amount of data. for instance archiving/indexing is done for all of it even if it is deduplicated.
