How to install UWP or packaged apps to an ReFS volume?

博麟 吴 46 Reputation points

Hello everyone.

I currently changed one of my volume from NTFS to ReFS, but later I found that I wasn't able to install packaged apps to this volume any longer. So, what should I do to install packaged apps to it?

Thanks a lot.

    Hello @Bolin,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    There are some conditions for UWP program deployment, you can see in this official document, ReFS volume is not supported.

    The app must be on an Microsoft Windows NT File System (NTFS) partition. Partitions with other formats are unsupported.

    Thank you.
