Deduplication to Optimize VSS Snapshots

Q: Will enabling Windows Server 2012 disk deduplication optimize my VSS snapshots?

A: No. The disk deduplication processes will skip all system data, including the content of the System Volume Information folder, which is where the VSS differencing storage area for snapshots lives.
