Enabling Windows Projected File System

ProjFS ships with Windows as an Optional Component. Before a provider can use it, it must be enabled. You can use PowerShell to enable ProjFS.

How to enable ProjFS using PowerShell

To use PowerShell to enable ProjFS use the Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature cmdlet in an elevated PowerShell window:

Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName Client-ProjFS -NoRestart

Reboot the computer if the Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature reports RestartNeeded: True.
