Hyper V host drive space issue
Posted on 2016-10-29
Hyper V Host: Windows Server 2008R2
This host has only one Guest Machine: Windows Server 2008R2
Guest server is a file and Print server. This guest server has two FIXED VHD files, one for OS (C:\) and one for Data (D:\).
both drives C and D have over 150 GB free disk space.
Problem: The Drive on the Host server growth couple gigabytes a day which creates a problem since the drive space is limited. When host server's drive gets full, the VM hosted on that drive stops functioning. I am not understanding why would this Drive grow in size where the guest OS has fixed size VHDs and it has enough free space.
I would appreciate any help
