We have 2 windows server 2019 based file server

We'd like to replicate folder between them with DFS Replication Groups but when trying to set up the replica for a folder we got the error that the path is not on NTFS, is actually REFS, and so it fails .

 

Is refs still not supported for replica on windows 2019 ?

Is there a way to overcome such limitation ?

thanks

DFS Replication does not support the Resilient File System (ReFS) or the FAT file system

@Dave PatrickThanks , thought that it was time to support also refs since windows 2012 ..
