  4. Give us a way to test ReFS corruption handling

    How can we mimic a bit-rot scenario with a large file in order to see if ReFS detects the error? All attempts to change any bits using readily available tools are recognized as legitimate changes by the file system and the file checksum shows no error. How can we test?

  5. Add multi-server reporting capability to FSRM

    Instead of managing reports for unused files or duplicate files on a per server basis, could we increase efficiency by having a single dashboard for the information.

  6. revert from.ESD to .WIM so DISM will work

    Many of your Windows users depend upon DISM repair so I suggest you revert to .WIM. .ESD can convert to .WIM but the level required to do so is above the majority of your users.
    Please escalate.

  9. A new windows server (maybe also a new home os)

    It's already starting to come to the end of 2018. Halfway to 2019. It's time for a new OS everyone! May I introduce; WINDOWS PLATNIUM! This could have more software and updated software. Maybe VMware. For virtualization. A revamped command prompt. And as one user suggested- Windows Hello. Maybe someway to store files for people all around the world so they can access their files and their files only. Do I maybe sound a little crazy? You might think that. With a better OS- A better future.

  13. Make Fixed Virtual Disks expandable or storage tier thin provisioning in Server editions

    Virtual disks that are created with storage pools cannot be expanded when tiered storage is used. VDisks created with tiered storage must be created as fixed disks making it impossible to expand later. Either change the process so that tiered VDisks can be created as thin provisioned disks or a process that will allow the expansion for fixed VDisks. It is impossible to determine how large a file server will grow over a period of years and not practical to create 30 TB disks when you only start 5 TB of data. Disk expansion is a must for today's ever…

  16. Multi copy

    My idea is to be able to apply short cuts to anything you copy, this way you won't have to copy a text like a username, paste it and then go back to copy your other details to login or signup somewhere on the internet.
    The shortcuts should be like (ctrl+c+1) for your first item you want to copy and (ctrl+c+2) for your second item you want to copy. For pasting it is basically the same but instead of (ctrl+c+the number you want to assign) it should be (crtl+v+the number you want to assign) example:(ctl+v+1 or crtl+v+2)
