HyperV Problems

I have problems with a missing HyperV machine which has1 VHD and 1 AVHD, so I restarted the server and then made a new Virtual Machine using the original VHD which starts, however my Exchange server is now 2 months old. I had a look aon the internet for help and can find that I can EDIT the VHD and AVHD to enable a merge of the 2. However I now read that I shouldnt have started my Virtual Machine as the Date stamp of the AVHDis no longer compatible with the VHD. Any help will be appreciated.

You may still be able to merge the .vhd and .avhd. Make a copy of the original .vhd just in case then try the merge.

Thanks I was able to edit the disk and Merge both VHD and AVHD then imported fine.

Snapshots.....grrrrr... thought they were to good to be true.
Snapshots are really useful but I do try to get rid of them asap once the Service Pack or whatever is completed!
