ReFS without Storage Spaces

So you need to create an ReFS volume?  Using the following registry location you can add an ReFS volume to Windows 10, but note data only booting from ReFS is not yet supported. Make sure to backup registry first!

Computer \ HKLM \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Control \ MiniNT

“allowrefsformatovernonmirrorvolume”=”1”

NOTE you need to create volume first but do not format. Format RAW Partition.

This class covers the Standard and Enterprise Editions of SharePoint 2013 and Office 365 / SharePoint Online.

SharePoint Search is one of the more ignored areas of SharePoint administration. As Search is often the only way users can find content in a large organization, and as SharePoint 2013 Search is both very powerful and very configurable, Search should be considered one of the more important services in need of formal administration and frequent tuning.
