Just a heads up - My PC upgraded to Windows Insider Build 16232 and I can no longer format HDD as ReFS (both in the GUI and in PowerShell - comes back as unsupported).  I've seen some posts saying there are issues with ReFS / Storage Spaces with 16232.  I'm trying to get 16241 to see if that works.

Nope can not format in Build 16241 either.....   and now can not roll back 2 versions so I'm stuck for now unless I format these drives in another machine

The old Win 10 Reg Hack does not work either in these builds.

Yay for insider builds..... 

 

:)

 

 

And yeah, the MiniNT hack no longer works, as it's "officially" supported now.

More oddities with the Insider build, if I take my NTFS drive from the PC with the insider build and just format it on another PC to ReFS then put it back, the Windows Insider Build PC still sees it as an NTFS partition.  If on the other PC I first remove the partition (leave it as RAW) then format as ReFS, when I put it back into the Insider build PC then it is seen as ReFS.

that's .. really odd.  

 

And I'd be curious what fsutil is reporting in this case. 

 

 

Also... this is why insider builds are not recommended for production use.  they are very prone to weird issues and bugs, like this.
