Windows Hyper-V server will not start. Currently in "Saved" state

One Virtual server is in "saved" state.   I have tried to start it but it fails.  This is a Windows 2008 R2 Hyper-V server.

Is there a way to fix this?

"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.

I'd start at looking at event logs to see what errors are showing up when you try to start it.

Why does it fail?  Error messages?  Disk space?  Event Log entries?  You really need to provide more information...

Out of curiosity, how much free RAM is available on the host and how much RAM does the VM want to use?

this normally happens when the host drive runs out of space.. if you want you can delete the saved state2018-09-29_20-30-08.png
