Using Garbage Collection

If you intend to use the optional deduplication feature, review your NetVault SmartDisk Garbage Collection configuration to ensure optimal NetVault SmartDisk performance. For details on configuring Garbage Collection, see the Quest NetVault SmartDisk Administrator's Guide.

Updating the Storage Pool directory structure

The preceding list identifies the default structure. If your NetVault SmartDisk Storage Pool Strategy requires a different structure, update it before you add NetVault SmartDisk as a device to your backup product. Examples of other structures that you might use include a third-party deduplication appliance, filer, or other NAS that is mapped or accessible through UNC. You might also want to implement an optimal performance strategy for your NetVault SmartDisk Storage Pools, which might require a different structure.

For more information about strategies, see Defining a Storage Pool strategy.

For more information about extending NetVault SmartDisk Storage Pools, see the applicable topic in the Quest NetVault SmartDisk Administrator’s Guide.

Before you can begin targeting NetVault SmartDisk for backups and restores, you must add a NetVault SmartDisk Device to your backup product. For more information, see the Quest NetVault SmartDisk Administrator’s Guide and the documentation that came with your product.
