ReFS with MBR

Post by sam.ngai » Sep 25, 2017 7:03 am

Hi all,
I have set up a backup server with attached storage. The file system of the storage is ReFS and the partition structure is MBR.
And I did the synthetic full backup, but this backup needed additional disk space which is different from using the GPT as the partition structure.
Why the spaceless synthetic full backup cannot be achieved by using MBR?

How do you tell it requires additional space on the GPT volume? Please note that you should not judge on the file properties. Do you see the [Fast Clone] tag in the job session?
