Disk Deduplication in Win8.x/10 for Stacker & DiskZIP Max

For all your technical questions and concerns.

Disk Deduplication in Win8.x/10 for Stacker & DiskZIP Max

Postby carlpe » Sat Oct 01, 2016 12:38 pm

I have created a program to activate Disk Deduplication in Windows 8, 8.1 and Windows 10 (64bit).
This is a requirement to run Stacker or DiskZIP Max on Windows 8, 8.1 and Windows 10 computers (64bit).

The original Microsoft files are used to make this possible. No extra files are installed.

This new version 6.10 (2017.02.12) of the dedup activation program with Windows version detection supports:

* Windows 8
* Windows 8.1
* Windows 10 Threshold 2 (version 1511)
* Windows 10 Redstone 1 (version 1607)

These are the links:

Data Deduplication for Windows 8, 8.1 and 10: http://www.orontesprojects.com/dedup/dedup_activation.exe
Silent Data Deduplication for Windows 8, 8.1 and 10: http://www.orontesprojects.com/dedup/dedup_activation_silent.exe

Zip file with the 2 programs for windows 8, 8.1 and 10: http://www.orontesprojects.com/dedup/dedup_activation.zip


EXTRA OPTIONS IN VERSION 6.10:

If it is still impossible to compress the disk with Stacker or DiskZIP Max, please run the Dedup Activator with the drive letter as parameter from a command prompt. Example for data drive E:
Code: Select all
dedup_activation  e:

or
Code: Select all
dedup_activation_silent  e:


After this command, you can use Zipmagic toolbox or Diskzip toolbox to project the compression ratio.
You cannot activate datadeduplication on drive C: !


In case of emergency, you can uncompress the dedup disk and disable data deduplication like this:
Code: Select all
dedup_activation e: disable

or
Code: Select all
dedup_activation_silent e: disable


The programs are using the official Microsoft binaries and nothing else.

This works great for me. Please let me know if it works for you!

Users with the Original Windows 10, Threshold 1 (version 1507) have 2 options to activate Disk/Data deduplication:

* update Windows with 'windows update' to the latest version and use the automatic program: http://www.orontesprojects.com/dedup/dedup_activation.exe (best method!)
* use a manual program to activate Disk/Data deduplication: http://www.orontesprojects.com/dedup/dedup10240/dedup_activation_windows10.exe

If Data Deduplication is still unavailable on Windows 8, 8.1, 10 after running my activation scripts, you can try to run our Data Deduplication for Windows GUI program: http://www.orontesprojects.com/dedup/datadedup.zip

Just run the program in 'Demo Mode' and wait. The first time, I will take a lot of time on some systems to activate the Data Deduplication libraries.
When you see the main screen, close the program. If your system is compatible, Data Deduplication is activated now.
If Data Deduplication is still not available, please run our program again in the near future. We will release automatic updates with new libraries frequently. Current version is 6.10.

There is no need to register, because from now on, you can use DiskZIP Max or Stacker to compress and maintain your data disks.
