  • Depends.

    MDT already provides disk space savings by only storing a single copy of a driver by default even when you import it multiple time. Deduplication comes into play when you make copies of your deployment shares (for example for testing purposes) or when you work with multiple large OS WIM files. For example, if you inject latest cumulative update into a WIM and import it into MDT, when Data Deduplication is used, only a few extra MBs will be used to store the new data instead of the entire file.


    Cheers,
    Anton
