    I managed to lock out all my files on secundary deduped HDD, which was deduped in win 8.1, and after upgrading to win 10 I have changed my primary HDD and did the clean install of win10. Now my files on the secundary drive are all locked!!! If I install dedup on win 10, will I be able to get my files back or are they irreversible locked out? Please help!!!

    AFAIK, the method used in the dedup will be compatible, but it may be difficult to setup as the files weren't meant for 10240.

    I can confirm that, when activating the Insider program, the driver starts. We really have to find where this comes from.
    By the way, when you try to run start-dedupjob manually on a newly created disk and it doesn't give any result, you just have to remind that the default minimum ages of files to dedup is set to 3 days.
    You can change this by using the following command : Set-DedupVolume -Volume W: -MinimumFileAgeDays 0
    When you execute Start-dedupJob, it'll work right away.

    I didn't say you're an idiot :)
    There's no progress at the moment to why the insider program helps solving this problem of certificate...
    Did you try the key ?

    Hi all,
    Here's a solution for those not part of Insider Program :
    bcdedit /set {...your identifier..} testsigning on

    It wasn't working previously. I presume that the latest package/install procedure made this possible (I didn't test this with the latest package as we previously tested it and it was unsuccessful).
    Of course, this means you can install unsigned drivers but this is not a big deal for geeks like you :)
    This is working for several persons now.
    Let us know if it's also ok for you.
    Thanks

    Could you upload the original extracted .cab packages if available? :)

    Hi,

    i have a detailed question to the Install Script in the Dedup Package:
    signtool.exe catdb /g {F750E6C3-38EE-11D1-85E5-00C04FC295EE} .\catalogs\*.cat >nul 2>&1

    Where do you get this GUID from and do i have to modify this GUID if i use for example the Dedup Files from 10537 Build?

    Thanks

    This is the only thing that is currently preventing me from upgrading Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. I need the dedup because of VM's stored to my SSD disks.

    Code:
    C:\Windows\System32\catroot2\{F750E6C3-38EE-11D1-85E5-00C04FC295EE}\catdb
    it's the default catdb for servicing packages

    it's the same for all builds

    29 October there's a windows 10 dev event at our school. I'll see if someone there knows whether it's being considered or not, but don't hope too much...

    Something else: Have they finished the dedup code already? Because if the dedup package hasn't "RTM-ed" yet I'd say it's pretty risky to use.

    Thanks
