    It should also be possible to use as boot volumes (e.g. install and boot Windows from ReFS partitions)?

    From the info I have, I assume that with v3 driver ReFS can be used on both BOOT and SYSTEM partitions.
    Also Windows 10 Setup (WinSE) has full ReFS v3 driver support now.

    Formatting with ReFSv1 and ReFSv3:

    Code:
    format D: /fs:refsv1
    format D: /fs:refs
    You can add manually the string:
    Code:
    %windir%\system32\wbem\refs.mof
    to:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Wbem\CIMOM]
    value:
    Autorecover MOFs

    Note: In the list (of MOFs) there is one (actually the 1st to be exact) item starting with blank line, Windows will scream about that, just delete that item.

    ReFS does not support booting yet so No Go in this case :tea:

    I hope that this version is acceptable, because in version in Server 2012 R2 was nothing but problems. While working OK itself, lots of apps had serious problems with accessing such volumes across network.
    Eventually had to move to NTFS

    Is NTFS file system not faster and better?

    Every time I try to copy the urefs.sys files, it says I need permissions but still denies me. Changed myself to be the owner of the files and give my user full control, still denies. Any ideas?
