Windows Server 2012 Data Deduplication Part 4

This is not a new information for some of you have read it before. If you did follow my previous post, you will see that I use a lot of powershell to configure the settings, in this articles I would like to give you an overview of what are those command are use for.

To get started, you must know the 3 basis command which as shown as below. This is important for you get understand what are those use for and learn it by your self.

Get-Help -Detailed
Get-Help -Examples
Get-Help -Full

I also have included a list of the command that you must know in data deduplication, however if you would like to use the GUI version that is fine too. This is just served as alternative if you are bored with GUI.
