What is de-duplication

De-duplication is a process by which the differences are recorded and stored between an initial version and a subsequent version or versions of a file. This process makes it possible to store several versions of a single file without having to restore each version as a completely new file each time a change is made.

SpiderOak uses de-duplication in a very advantageous way as it relates to your SpiderOak account which you can learn more about here:
