Mostly media files have lesser chances of getting de-duplicated. This is because most of the redundancy is already removed from these type of files. For example MP3, MP4 and JPEG are already stored in compressed formats.

Similarly, CAD files may or may not get higher de-duplication. It is also found that few CAD applications scramble and rewrite while saving file data while which further reduces the chances of de-duplication.
