Can you save images to an ReFS (as opposed to NTFS) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm building a new WDS server and going through the documentation, i see that NTFS is specified in a variety of places.

    I was going to play with Storage Pools and ReFS, and was curious if I would run into any problems.

    I was thinking that I would have the OS (with WDS/MDT) on the C partition then create a second drive formatted as ReFS and using Storage Pools as my Deployment Share.

    Any thoughts?

    Also, any thoughts on optimal RAID types for the C drive? 

    ~if this were /. this sig would be funny

  • I have tested MDT using Storage Spaces but, only NTFS. Using ReFS would be worth a shot though :)

  • It does not work:

    Error Description: The specified installation root volume is invalid. The Windows Deployment Services root folder can only exist on a volume that is formatted with the NTFS file system.
