I followed the link, for installing OpenDedup in my linux machine (Ubuntu 12.04 - 64 bit). I created a SDFS volume and mounted it.

I copied two similar Ubuntu VMs, which has a high amount of sharing, into the SDFS volume. But the files got stored as such. Is there any specific commands for enabling deduplicaiton feature in the SDFS volume. Or will dedpulication get applied to the files that we copy into the volume.?
