Deduplication / dedupe

Deduplication of data—also known as dedupe—is a process that eliminates redundant copies of data to reduce storage overhead. Redundant data is replaced with a pointer to the unique copy. This ensures that the data deduplication aligns with copies of the data that have changed since the previous backup.
