DiskZIP Max is really a thin gui/wrapper around Microsoft data deduplication - it doesn't add any features (although, we did have a project that enabled booting from a deduped volume; it was shelved later with the availability of DiskZIP Offline - which compresses better than Max, actually).

So given that context, if it works natively with the Microsoft data deduplication stack, it would work with DiskZIP Max also. Please let us know what you find - it would be great to have that additional data point.

As aforementioned MAX is just a thin shell - so it would work on REFS if the underlying OS support is there - did you try it already and have it work or fail?
