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.
