I have a hyper-v machine.  I had been dropping rdp connections and was thinking it was some sort of network thing, but I think it was really the os having issues.  One was just doing a windows update and ran out of room. so it paused.  It was brand new and only was 15gb, but I allocated 100 gb.  There is a ton of space on the disk.  I went into the event viewer and saw it was really something else.  This is what I saw.  Let me know if you need any more info.  Thanks!

This was before it if it matters

Hi

For the: 'Template' has been paused because it has run out of disk space on

Do you have any snapshots on that machine? This can fill you system and fill your storage and you will be out of free space.

In hyper-v manager, delete all your snapshots. Then start you VM, and wait untill the system corrects your VM and clean all the snapshots.

For the: The parent virtual hard disk appears to have been modified without using the differencing virtual hard disk

I think that type or issues is regarding snapshots, also have you roll back to any snapshots? Or have you manually deleted any snapshots?

Take a look at this to understand more the snapshots.

Thanks.  Let me explain.

i am going to be doing some sharepoint development.  I have a box server 2008 with a 250 c drive with plenty of free space.  It has another 250 for storage.  I have another physical disc with 500 gig for my vms.  I just deleted a ton of files and there are hundreds of free gigs.  

I just created this vm today.  My goal is to load a bunch of programs then clone it.  I haven't taken any snapshots, and haven't really done much.

I really think there is an over abundance of free space, and that error is indicative of something else.

The host is a few years old, I will admit.  The vms are fresh.

Make sure you still have free space on the host E: drive. It sounds like you ran out of free space.
