    I tried installing Windows 10 LTSB on my system and it couldn't read my ReFS formatted storage space. It recognized the storage space, but couldn't read the file system. As far as I can tell its missing support for reading ReFS.

    As far as I can remind it's an registry key but I'm not sure could be that it's not supported on LTSB

    I would suggest against using ReFS at this stage. It's simply not ready for its prime time yet. I recently had two dead HDDs (with bad sectors) and both were with ReFS before they died. They had been good for many years when using NTFS on them.
    Maybe it's just a coincidence, and the bad sectors had nothing to do with ReFS, but right now Linux can not read/write a ReFS drive, which is a PITA. I reverted back all ReFS drives to NTFS or EXT4.

    ReFS is suited for large datacenters drives or large workstation Drives way beyond 4TB with UEFI/GPT partitions.
