ReFS or NTFS

Post by andreas2012 » Aug 10, 2018 11:09 am

Hi,

I have bought a new physical server that will be the primary repository server with internal disks.
Now this server is installed with Windows Server 2016.
I have 12 disks, and configured these with raid 10, with stripe size 128, as I understand this is recommended.
Then the question is, should I use ReFS og NTFS ?

The environment is backing up both virtual (vmware) and physical servers... none of these are on ReFS

Thanks for answers

/Andreas

Hey,

It always depends on your needs or limitations you would like to avoid.
As Foggy said there are many topics with different considerations, here are some of them:
REFS for repository best practice
REFS KB for best practices and risks

I am locking this thread down to prevent duplicate discussions.

Thanks!
