zpool create[edit]

Creating a pool for use with Windows, it is recommended to use casesensitivity=insensitive as it has better compatibility.

The ZFS commands need to be run as Administrator so start your favourite shell, be it bash or CMD.exe and start it with "Run as Administrator".

For example:

# List Disks available
wmic diskdrive list brief   

# Create pool on disk 1 named tank.
zpool.exe create -O casesensitivity=insensitive -O compression=lz4 -O atime=off -o ashift=12 tank PHYSICALDRIVE1
