Hi All,
I have a query for de duplicating messages based on unique hash and then sorting and paging it, i was wondering how I can optimize it better.

Hash and Name column in the Message table are non clustered indexes defined with storeid, folderid, Hash or Name(either)

The only thing i see problematic is an index scan but that is same even if i remove the deduplication cte and do the main query on the Message table, i think that is more to do with select *

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

With DeduplicatedMessages as 
select * from Message
SELECT MAX(MessageId) as UniqueMessageId
FROM Message
where StoreId=210 and FolderId=24541
) as UniqueMessages ON
Message.Messageid = UniqueMessages.UniqueMessageId

select * from (select ROW_NUMBER() over (order by Name ASC) as RI, * from DeduplicatedMessages) as SUB where sub.RI >= 0 and sub.RI <=1000

In order to help we will need a few things:

1. Sample DDL in the form of CREATE TABLE statements
2. Sample data in the form of INSERT INTO statements
3. Expected results based on the sample data

Please take a few minutes and read the first article in my signature for best practices when posting questions.
