If you've moved the VHD file check NTFS permissions on the file.

Also check that in the settings of the Virtual Machine that it is pointing to the file in its proper location.

Did not move the file. I simply expanded the disc.  However I got it figured out. I had to export the VM and then reimport it. I deleted the previous version after the successful import and to my disbeleif its not skipping a beat.

Had to delete my remote desktop  configuration on my home pc and reconnect but no issues.

Ip same, every thing same.

Tell me to export the vm and reimport and i will award points.
