HYPER V SBS 2011 Low Disk Space on Host
Posted on 2012-03-16
I would be extremely grateful if somebody could assist us with a current SBS VM server that is down..
Our Hyper Host machine is now low on disk space where the SBS 2011 Guest OS is loaded...
We have mistakenly shut it down to try to perform a merge to free disk space but this has just added to our problems..., as we do not have the necessary disk space to perform the merge , which consquently keeps restarting...
We have the current "files" in our VM folder
SBS 2011Server.vhd 16.03.2012 21:47 with a size of 181,153,654
SBS 2011 Server.avhd 16.03.2012 12:15 with a size of 137,186,763
SBS 2011 Server.avhd 16.03.2012 20:28 with a size of 28,202,466
SBS 2011 Server.avhd 16.03.2012 21:47 with a size of 140,382,423
This is my d drive , I have 152GB available on c (os) partition and approx 500GB on a my E drive which is an external E drive....
I have read various articles on the web but if somebody could be a little more specific on this particular issue we would be externally grateful...
can we delete/move the oldest avhd or will this result in data loss ?
thanks expert, hoping you can help us in our hour of need
