Windows 7 backup and restore - try to delete the *.vhd file
Posted on 2014-09-23
I am having a bit of an issue with Windows 7 Back and restore routine. Quite frankly I am stuck using this piece of trash. Here's what I did: I needed to backup a user folder to a network share daily. Unfortunately, I also choose, as part of the backup, to create a WindowsImageBackup (system image) of the Win7 PC (I think), which I wish I never did. Anyway, when the backup is finished it now consumes almost 30gb of disk space on my server (SBS 2003). I am fighting for disk space on this server. There is a *.vhd file that is 27gb on the network share, and when I try to delete it I get the standard "error deleting File or Folder"..."Access is denied...make sure disk is not full and that the file is not currently in use."
I have tried to delete the Backup&Restore job, which I assume, would release the file so that I can delete it...no go...I can't see find out how to delete this job. Can you help me. Thank you in advance for you help....any suggestion would be most helpful.
