Hi All

  I have a virtual machine which consist of one VHD files and 6 avhdx files, i was having many 5 snapshots and i need now to combine them to single VHDX file as before, when I deleted the snapshots it was deleted but the disk was full, now the machine is working but using this file for example   Server1_B6586990-9214-4403-B9D2-D3425BA0B2C6.avhdx

Copy all vhd and avhd files on another disk which have enough free space to merge the snapshots and follow below article to manually merge the snapshots.

Use inspect disk to find the snapshot chain.

NOTE : Take a VM files backup before performing this activity.
