How to use ReFS

On a regular PC with Windows 10 you can only use ReFS through the Disk Management feature. Be sure to format your storage spaces as ReFS, not NTFS, when you select the file system option. You can automatically use the data integrity functions in the ReFS file system if you select it.

In Windows Server you can format certain volumes as ReFS using the usual disk management tools, which can be especially useful if you use virtual machines on these disks. And again, you cannot format the boot disk as ReFS, and you lose access to some NTFS features.
