How do I Delete SnapShots files in Hyper-V? Windows Server 2008
Posted on 2009-04-16
I tried to Delete the Snapshots of a virtual machine in Hyper-V. The Hyper-V Manager now displays "The selected virtual machine has no snapshots", but when the machine is turned off, the "Merge in Progress (x%)" is displayed. My problem is that it gets up to 7% then starts all over again. I have looked at the Snapshot File Location, in the Hyper-V Manager Settings for the virtual Machine and that 300gig drive is full! Hence why the "Merge in Progress" continues to restart. This drive also is where the Virtual Machine is also stored.
Can I delete any files to allow the Merge to continue and possible finish, or can I delete the snapshot files and still be able to start and use my Virtual Machine?
One of the .avhd files is 114 gigs.
