I installed ReFS on a group of four 1TB drives in a two-way mirror. It has performed very well for me until I did a clean reinstall of Windows 10 Anniversary Update. Now, the file system keeps creating copies of random files I have used with a file name of "Copy of {file name} conflict from {date} at {time})". I read in one post that this could be the result of "Hide folder merge conflicts" set in Folder Options > View tab. I cleared that flag but I continue to get the conflicts. It seems to be associated with applications saving files while running. For example, yesterday it happened once with the .qdf file while I was adding entries in Quicken and today it does it to my Inbox file and its .msf file every time I open Thunderbird.


I am puzzled and I do not see much support information on ReFS any where.
