Microsoft Windows Dev Drive

If you are working with repositories that have many thousands of files and directories, heavy I/O operations such as builds will take significantly more time. At Build 2023, Microsoft today introduced Dev Drive a new type of storage volume developed for developers without compromising on performance and security.

Microoft Dev Drive is based on the Resilient File System (ReFS) and it uses a new performance mode capability in Microsoft Defender for Antivirus and delivers up to 30% file system improvement in build times for file I/O scenarios. ‘

The new performance mode is more secure for your workloads than folder or
process exclusions, providing an ultimate solution to balance security with performance.
