Question True Crypt & ReFS

Although I understand ReFS rather well, I am new to True Crypt.

Briefly,

1) I want to Install TC on a Thumb Drive (FAT of course)

2) I want to use the True Crypt Thumb Drive to encrypt volumes on drives using ReFS and not NTFS.

Will I have any problems with my encrypted files (ReFS) being corrupted, etc.?

Thanks!

Default Re: True Crypt & ReFS

For those not aware of what ReFS is, Resilient file system (Windows)
As for your question since it's used on windows servers, you should ask Microsoft about possible corruption of files.

Thumbs up Re: True Crypt & ReFS

Actually, I've done volumes of reading since I posted that question.

First of all, TC cannot encrypt an ReFS formatted drive.

Second of all ReFS definitely cannot be used to format an external (USB) drive.

Thanks for posting the link. Actually there is major tonnage of info about ReFS on the net - to be found via Google.

As "For those not aware of what ReFS is", I can only say that it's just a matter of time before all sophisticated computer users know about ReFS. In the same way that NTFS replaced (for the most part) FAT, ReFS will be replacing NTFS.

This article is succinct and very much to the point: Q: What features does NTFS support that ReFS does not support? | Windows Server 2012 content from Windows IT Pro
