    Feeling counts nothing. Real World experiences count a lot.

    Looks like you have no idea of what I'm talking about.

    Wasted storage O_0 ? 1 Terabyte on bare metal = 1 Terabyte on VM

    Wasted CPU ? Just no. CPU usage is practically 0 when idling, a bit more when accessing files. Obviously is High when the dedup service runs, but that's true for baremetal as well.

    Wasted RAM ? Well Hypercore 2019 takes about 600MB when idling. Less than a couple of modern web pages on nowadays web browsers.

    Looks something released by the "Bureau for complications of simple affairs"

    Aside that I can't see what one dying to have the dedup working on W11 has to do with linux and btrfs...

    The only robust Dedup solution on linux comes from ZFS, but given that's native and not sticked over an old FS like the MS one, it dedupes the files on the fly, not on schedule, and to do so it uses an huge quantity of ram, 8GB per TB of deduped storage is really the bare minimum, while in windows I can dedupe 2TB with less of 2GB (which are used only when the dedup service is running). That's what I call a waste of resources (for home usage at least)

    So (until a native package for w11 is released) you have tree choices.

    #1 Stay on win 10 and live happy

    #2 Stay on win 10 and play with a virtuaized w11

    #3 Folllow my suggestion above

    It's the same if you try to port the w8 dedup on w7 or w10 dedup on w81, clearly the kernel/fltrmgr.sys changes matters.
