With alternate streams now available on ReFS in Windows 2012 R2 and 8.1 will Drivepool support ReFS volumes in the future? NTFS has been a solid platform for many years, but MS has, with the introduction of ReFS in 2012 provided a real alternative with many new benefits, so I think a lot of us are considering a move to ReFS in the foreseable future especially for the frequent write-once-read-seldom scenarios that most of us have with media libraries and file servers. This is actually not so very different from the ZFS/BTRFS vs. EXT3/EXT4 discussions the linux community has. I am wondering what thoughts you guys have about ReFS and where do you think DrivePool/Scanner is headed with regards to ReFS? regards F. Godskesen "Microsoft Windows 8.1 adds support for ReFS volumes and, compared with Microsoft Windows Server 2012, both Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1 add additional features when using ReFS, including alternate data streams and automatic correction of corruption when integrity streams are used on parity spaces." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ReFS http://www.petri.co.il/4-reasons-refs-is-better-than-ntfs.htm http://forum.covecube.com/discussion/1031/refs-support/p1
