Thanks for the reply foggy. So it looks like the below is what we will need to do when setting up a new 2016+ReFS repository?

Don't forget to perform full backup after that to enable new capabilities.

I have a "best practce" question when adding a new 2016 ReFS Windows Repository to Veeam.

Which of these options should I enable when presented with the Storage Compatibility Settigs:

Align backup file data blocks
Decompress backup data blocks before storing
Use per-VM backup files

Thanks!

You will find that the first one is selected and disabled when you target ReFS volume, so you can't touch that one anyway ;)

As far as the other two - there is no sense to decompress when going to ReFS, and per-VM is not ReFS specific setting - so use general considerations there (per-VM will give you a better performance at the cost of some extra disk space consumption, and is always a good idea to have enabled beyond a few hundreds of VMs per job for scalability reasons).
