Virtual Machine Running on AVHD but no Snapshot shown

I have a legacy machine on 2012 hyper-v host.  The legacy vm is a Windows 2000 server and we need more room.  So, I deleted the snapshots it had.  While I was waiting for the merge to complete, another admin shut the machine down then started it up again.

The GUI of HyperV Manager shows no snapshots for that VM anymore.  However, it still shows it is operating off of the AVHD of that snapshot.  Both the VHD and AVHD are in the storage area.  The VHD has grown from 90GB to 115GB while the AVHD has stayed at about 40GB.  

I am not sure what I should do here.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
