Change Journal scan method is not supported on Resilient File System (ReFS) volumes on Windows Server 2016 computers. The Recursive Scan or Optimized Scan method is used to backup data.

Restore from Deduplicated Volumes

Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2016 has a deduplication feature that can be enabled. Data from deduplicated volumes will be backed up in its original state (uncompressed). Therefore, during a restore, ensure that you have enough storage space on the volume to restore the full data size.
