Here we can see, “How to Enable Windows Projected File System on Windows 10”
Fast Ring Insiders have recently received a fresh Windows 10 build from Microsoft. So, if you’ve had enough of the previous build, you can now upgrade to build 17604.
This new version introduces the Windows Projected File System, which is a highly fascinating feature.
This option is already available to Insiders by heading to Windows Features > Turn Windows features on and off. All you have to do now is select the Windows Projected File System option.
Tero Alhonen, who spotted the change, took to Twitter to share the screenshot above with the rest of the world.
On the other hand, Walking Cat claims that Microsoft has renamed the GVFS (Git Virtual File System) to ProjF. (Windows Projected Filesystem).
Anyway, we’ll look into it further and update the article when new information becomes available.
So, if you’ve updated the latest Windows 10 release and tried out the Windows Projected File System functionality, let us know how it went in the comments section below.
Instead of requiring developers to install GVFS, the Redmond behemoth is now included as a standard part of Windows, as one of our readers pointed out. So walking Cat’s theory is supported by this evidence.
Check out our reader’s remark below for more details. Josedolf, thank you very much.
Because Windows Security focuses on Virtualization-Based Security, the Windows Projected File System is not security-related. Instead, the Windows Projected Filesystem is presumably similar to OneDrive: the files are on a remote server, and you can see “placeholders,” but they aren’t truly on your machine until you view them (thus the term “projected” file system).
UPDATE: Windows Projected File System, which allows for very huge repositories with no performance impact, is what powers GVFS, according to several Windows Insider and other developers’ Twitter accounts. Because there is no documentation yet, it is labeled “Beta.”
I hope you found this information helpful. Please fill out the form below if you have any questions or comments.
1. What is the best way to use the Windows projected file system?
The Windows Projected File System (ProjFS) allows a “provider,” a user-mode application, to project hierarchical data from an underlying data store into the file system, making it seem like files and directories.
2. In Windows 10, how can I locate the filesystem?
Yes to the User Account Control (UAC) prompt. Type SFC /scannow into the command prompt window and hit Enter. The system file checker software examines the integrity of Windows system files and, if necessary, restores them. Restart the computer after the process is finished.
3. How does the file system in Windows 10 work?
Windows 10, like Windows 8 and 8.1, employs the NTFS file system as its default. ReFS is only used in one part of the operating system, the so-called “Storage Space,” as it is in Windows 8.1. Multiple physical discs can be combined into a single logical drive using this method.
4. Windows 10 latest build brings full access to file system
5. After 1809, there seem to be quite a lot of Windows Features
