2008r2 HyperV host with single VM, has one vhd and single snapshot
Flailing attempts to reduce consumed disk space have made the situation worse - now down to around 550MB free space for the host drive file system.
Researching the issue I believe that an export is the only option if snapshots are present but of course I need to retain the GUI and name of the server. So successfully exported to a larger host disk with ample space but then the import of course fails.
So now it would appear that the only way to stay on the same host is to delete this VM - but then when the VM is deleted the avhd will be merged with the vhd file and it will run out of space (and I need to then be on-site to make more space happen).
I want rid of the snapshot but not the changes on it.
Any suggestions are welcome?
Oh yeah, I did do a Windows backup to shared folder if that matters.
