I used it on two different systems.
Both were ext4, and converted them to btrfs, both developed the same problems -- applications complain of corrupt data and a few minutes later, "read only filesystem".
The only recourse is to format the partition and restore the data from backups.

Beware if you want to try out btrfs like I did.
The F24 Live's btrfs-convert is broken!
