sorry this link doesnt point to where i wanted to

here's a snippet:

*lessfs*is a filesystem that performs inline data deduplication. lessfs 
uses the 192-bit (24-byte) tiger hash algorithm by default to compare 
the data. The filesystem compresses the unique data blocks before 
writing them to disk.
