The refs file system (Resilient File System), previously known as the Protogon code was introduced by Microsoft with Windows Server 2012. Based on the best-known NTFS, it can better manage large volumes of data and to "ensure the integrity of data through resilience to damage." It retains course all NTFS features and replaces the functionality that have limited value.

At that time Microsoft had announced its intention to democratize the new file system and stated that it would be gradually integrated. The editor of Redmond seems to have kept his word as ReFS was seen in the pre-release of Windows 9369 8.1 (Blue).

Although this feature will not be revolutionary, but it will be transparent to users, or almost. ReFS file system for example has some advantages over NTFS, such as improved automatic placement of data on disks, which leads to less need for defragmentation for example, better guaranteed response time and overall better user experience . 

This also coincides with the will of Microsoft to unify its systems and interfaces, as the editor makes clear since the release of Windows 8.
