Configuring destination efficiency settings

You can configure destination efficiency settings such as deduplication, compression, autogrow, and space guarantee on a protection destination using the Advanced Destination Settings dialog box. You use these settings when you want to maximize space utilization on a destination or secondary volume.

Before you begin

You must have the Application Administrator or Storage Administrator role.
