For Windows users, it is certainly not strange to format the hard drive NTFS (short for New Technology File System) anymore.
It must be said that NTFS format is really good, it provides an extremely high stability during operation and has advanced features that you can not find in any other file system.
But everything has its advantages, and NTFS is no exception. There are still some specific tasks that the NTFS format cannot handle.
To solve this problem, Microsoft created a new file system called Resilient File System (ReFS) to overcome these weaknesses of NFFS.
So what is ReFS? and how to activate ReFS on Windows 10? Please go ahead and find out the details through this article!
#first. Learn about Microsoft's ReFS file system
As I just said, Resilient File System (ReFS) is a new file system created by the father of the Windows operating system, appearing for the first time on Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012.
It is designed to ensure reliability and maximize data on storage devices even when they have a hardware failure.
Here are some highlights of ReFS:
– Supports large data volumes of up to 1.2 trillion Terabytes.
– Maximum file size is 16 million Terabytes.
– Better fault tolerance.
– Integrity: ReFS has the ability to store and protect our data from common errors that can cause data loss.
If any error occurs, ReFS can detect when using Storage Spaces, it will automatically find and fix these errors.
In some cases of system failure, ReFS will be able to recover from errors quickly, but the user's data is still guaranteed integrity.
– Application compatible : Maintain support for NTFS features, because this format is being used very commonly on computers.
To maximize AppCompat, ReFS supports a subset of the NTFS features, plus the Win32 API.
– Data stored on ReFS disks can be easily accessed using File Explorer (Windows + E), or software available on operating systems.
#2. How to activate ReFS on Windows 10
First appeared on Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012, and of course ReFS still supports Windows 10 operating system, but by default it will be disabled.
If you need to reformat the drive according to ReFS, you must manually re-enable it first, and that's why we have this article.
Note: But before you do, you need to back up the entire Registry of the system because in this article we will edit, touch the Registry of Windows 10, so that if you make a mistake and encounter errors, you can still recover. Restore as usual offline!
+ Step 1: First you open Windows Run (
Windows + R) => then enter
regedit => and press
OK to open the familiar Registry editing tool called Registry Editor.

Enter for quick access to the directory
In this folder, right-click on the box to the right and select
New => select
DWORD (32-bit) Value to create a new value.
Path in the Registry (how to quickly open a Regedit path):
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SYSTEM CurrentControlSet Control FileSystem
+ Step 3: You name this new value as
If the creation is not timely, you can right-click on the current name (for example,
New Value #1) => then select the line
Rename to change the name properly.
After correct the correct name, then double click on the value
RefsDisableLastAccessUpdate To edit, in the box:
- Value data revised to
- Base then leave the default
=> Then press
OK is done.
+ Step 4: Continue to find and access the key
MiniNT Follow this link:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SYSTEM CurrentControlSet Control
MiniNT Not available, right click on the folder
Control => and then select
New => select
Key and name it
+ Step 5: After has
MiniNT then you proceed to create a value
DWORD (32-bit) New by right clicking on the empty box to the right of this folder => and selecting
DWORD (32-bit) Value.
+ Step 6: Name the newly created value
AllowRefsFormatOverNonmirrorVolume => Then double click on this value, and set as follows:
- Value Data: Correct the number
- Base: You are still there
=> Then press
OK is done.
+ Step 7: Now close the Registry and restart the computer for the above changes to take effect.
Then create a new partition or plug in any external storage device (eg USB) => and then format (Format) again according to ReFS style.
Finally, you can check the file format by right-clicking on the partition or USB formatted => and selecting
At the window
Properties, in the General tab you look down
File system if seen ReFS is OK then.

So I have detailed instructions for you How to activate the ReFS file system (Resilient File System) on Windows 10 operating system.
Hopefully this article will be useful for your work. Good luck !
