Hi,

If my volumes are both Deduped and with Bit Locker on, can I do Windows Server Backup, or do I have to first do something about any of those? In Azure backup, bitlockered vols are not supported, do not know about Dedup in Azure...

Thanks

    Hi @SadiqhAhmed-MSFT . I think your answer deals with Azure not on premise Windows Server- and this is the one I'm looking for to get answered...The questions posed is about on premise situation.

    Hey,

    I just noticed that for some reason the post did not include all tags (which I fixed just now). I think also that I found the answer:
