My existing system has a local repository, and a remote repository that runs the VBR as well - both are physical servers with 64k REFS drives as that is what is recommended. Everything is fine and they are backing up a selection of 2k8r2 servers nightly. All good.
I'm building a new Hyper-V host on new hardware. It will run server2016 and host all new 2016 guest VMs. Ignoring the OS C drive which is NTFS, I have two 4 Disk RAID10 volumes - this is where my VMs will live. What format should I use for them? These are not repositories, but they will be backed up by Veeam [to the repositories mentioned in paragraph 1 above].
Is the current thinking still to use 64k REFS volumes? I was going ahead with this but got a little scared when I found the 80-page thread about excessive memory/cpu consumption using REFS.

Nmdange is right. Microsoft clearly makes the 4K recommendation for volumes that hosts VMs. You can read why here: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/fil ... -and-ntfs/
