I have virtual machine running on Windows Server 2012 R2 hyperv. Today I was going to move it to different partition when I noticed that there is a large file with the same name as the name of the hard disk with .tmp,vhdx extention.

so in effect there are 2 file in Virtual Disks folder for that machine named:

vmachine.vhdx and vmachine.tmp.vhdx

What is this file?
Can I delete it (it is 150GB)
