ReFS 3.0 to CIFS Share - File too large

Hello everyone,

We are in the process of migrating to Windows 2016 + ReFS, but I just noticed when trying to copy files out of the new ReFS drive into a Netapp CIFS share for archival purposes, we get an error stating that the file is too big (keep in mind it is only 80GB in size).
Has anyone dealt with this in the past?
I can change the CIFS into a local drive in the server to circumvent the issue, but I was curious if anyone found a fix for this already.

Thanks!

For any of you who were wondering, that issue might have been related to a ReFS.sys bug. See more details here.
