Microsoft VPC "V01" File Type

Earlier today, while I had a VPC 2007 image running here on my Vista laptop, the image froze and closed out on me.  Likely, I had too many apps up and it was drained of resources.

Anyway, after I rebooted my laptop and went back to the folder that contains my image, I opended the "Undo" file.  I did not want to save or undo changes.  I just went in and everything seemed fine.

Then, I closed out.  Before I had re-opened just then and after I had closed out this second time, I noticed a 0 Byte file with with a file type called "V01"in Windows Explorer.  What is this?  I went ahead and deleted it, anyway.  Then, I opened my image (not the undo but the "regular" image file).  It looked and ran just fine.

That's all well and good.  But, just out of curiosity, what is that "V01" file type?  Was it OK to delete it?  Is my image harmed?  (I have a backup, anyway.)

By the way, the image was a Windows 7 image.

VHD= 13 GB
There are 2 VMC files--one is 12 KB, the other 9 KB.  I only run the 12 KB.
How do I check for NTFS to answer your question?

the VHD is 13 GB so I am pretty sure the filesystem is NTFS.
Open the VMC file in the notepad. If you don't find a reference to a .v01 file then I guess you are Ok.
What surprises me that you have 2 VMC files.
