I have set up the registry with reference to this article,

including AllowRefsFormatOverNonmirrorVolume and RefsDisableLastAccessUpdate , after restarting I want to format my USB stick, but there is no ReFS.

    Hello @beer2022

    Some of the Considerations and Limitations of using ReFS are listed below, I would suggest you check this first with your configuration.

    -ReFS does not support SAN storage features such as thin provisioning, TRIM/UNMAP, and ODX
    -To use ReFS supported configurations you must use Windows Server Catalog certified hardware and meet application requirements.
    -Do not use ReFS with iSCSI or FC SANs unless explicitly supported by the hardware vendor.

    Some recent Windows update has also caused some issues with the ReFs so I would suggest you check if you have made any recent updates if so uninstall these updates and check if that helps you.

    Hope this resolves your Query!!
