Dev Drive on Windows 11 (ReFS)
Windows 11 has a new feature called Dev Drive which uses an ReFS volume to improve performance of software builds--you store your source code and libraries in it. ReFS has been part of Windows Server for many years, but now Windows 11 can create these volumes.
Which MSP360 edition would I use to back up a PC with an ReFS Dev Drive? I suspect Server. But will ReFS be supported by the Desktop Edition?
The Desktop edition should work; however, there are some limitations for ReFS volume backup, including:
- Item Level Restore is not supported
- Change Block Tracking is not supported
- Exclude files and folders is not supported
"- Item Level Restore is not supported"
Thanks for the reply.
That's a shame, and tells me I should create my ReFS dev drive not as a physical volume, but as a VHDX file on an NTFS volume. In that way, if I need to do item level restore, I'll restore the VHDX file, mount it, then pick out what I want to restore. I wouldn't be able to do this easily with a physical volume.
