Restore from ReFS USB drive

Case no. #03215070


I am trying to do a test restore of a Windows Agent backup from a USB drive formatted as ReFS. The backup job is managed through the Veeam console. I have created the recovery media as follows:
* Open the Veeam console on the Server 2016 VM which hosts the backup repository (rotating USB hard drives, ReFS)
* Create a recovery media ISO
* Copy the ISO to my own machine (win7) and burn to a disk
* Boot a spare laptop with a blank hard drive from the recovery media, and connect the ReFS USB drive.

The recovery media does not see the USB drive. What am I doing wrong?

why would you want to do that anyways ? ReFS is not bootable.
