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

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.
