Why does my virtual machines convert to AVHDX files?

Ohmit asked
Last Modified: 2015-04-22
I have a pc running Windows 8.1.
My plan was to use Hyper-V for some virtual Windows 7 machines.
For some strange reason the virtual hard drives has changed to AVHDX format.
I know that this has something to do with snap shots / recovery points but I don't recall making these.
How do I convert back to VHDX?

Looking forward to your inputs :-)
