Make Windows Search service work with Data Deduplication service
Windows Search service does not Work together with Data deduplication service. Besides saving a lot of your customers a lot of time it would be a strong feature, and actually as expected by customers.
Thanks, and kind regards
did cost me some hours to find out why the search function is not working properly...

I'm rather amazed (who's kidding who? After all of these years, I'm no longer amazed by their shenanigans) that Microsoft either can't or is unwilling to make their own stuff compatible with their own stuff.
Hi Boss, I found a way to drastically reduce the size of our stored data on disk. Oh, but we can no longer efficiently search for files on it. And also, if we use Robocopy, we'll probably corrupt the disk. But other than that...

Windows Dedupe is the best implementation on the market. Post process is far superior to inline implementations. Who wants to burn CPU cycles on dedupe when workloads are busiest? Variable chunk sizes increase efficiency by at least 15% over everything else I've tested.
That said, I really DO need to have a means of searching for files (at least by filenames if not by indexed content) such that the search results include the RPs.
Please add this feature!

Windows at it again. Adding a very useful and much requested feature. Which will not work with other useful and required features. What is the point of saving a large ammount of disk space when you are unable to index that large ammount of files and data?
A must have feature!

It's laughable that a core function for file servers doesn't work properly. Right now our choices are either save 50% on disk space, or index our files and have them search quickly.
