I've deleted VM's and created new ones.  I just noticed that the old Virtual Disks are still there.  How do I delete the ones no longer associated with a VM?

Hi there,

If you already deleted them from Hyper-V Manager, you can go ahead and simply delete all their associated files manually as usual, no other fancy steps to do. That includes virtual drives, snapshots, configuration files, etc.

Regards,

Eddie

Yes, if they are already gone from Hyper-V manager, you can delete all the remaining files with no problems whatsoever. You could also keep some or all of the files if you want to and that won't cause any problems either, besides filling up hard disk space.
