Azure Backup ReFS Support
Our Server 2012 R2 Essentials has all of our mission critical data stored on a set of HDDs formatted with ReFS, as would seem good practise for this sort of data.
Today I started a trial of Azure Backup to see if it would work as a Cloud backup solution for our server.... to no avail as I have used ReFS on the drive I want to protect.
Will ReFS be added in the near future? From what I have seen in forums, there has been no response to questions about Azure Backup and ReFS since 2012.
If it is not likely to be implemented soon then I will be dropping our Azure account, as it is of essentially no use to us.
Thanks for any help with this.

Agreed. This support is essential!

This should have been supported from day 1.

Azure Backup needs to support every file system a Windows Server 2016 system can run.
wating, waiting... another...

Hello Microsoft, you push us to use ReFS on our servers and then offer no support in your Azure Backup service, which you also push us to inside the S2012 Computer Manager. When will support be added? This is frustrating as ****....

Was very surprised to learn there is no support for ReFS. Any updates?
