    Dedupe and profiles

    Deduplication in 2012 is amazing however I have purposely left it off on the hard drive holding my user's profiles. No doubt there is a lot to be saved here but figured files which are due to be accessed a lot during the day should not be messed with. Has anyone had experience having deduplication on their profile location or do you think I am wise to leave it well alone. Profile corruptions have been a pain in the past so don't want to cause any more issues with them.

    Running dedupe on a profile drive shouldn't cause an issue - it isn't "active" dedupe - it runs on a schedule that you determine.

    Also, theoretically, dedupe should speed up profile access - the files would be less "spread out" over the disk, as multiple requests for the same block will go to one place rather than multiple places across the disk.

    We've had it enabled on the drive that holds our profile for over 6 months now and it's never caused a problem. Go for it.
