I have a HyperV virtual machine that has two disks (P...K1-0.vhdx & P...K1-1.vhdx) - C drive and E drive. Each drive carries three files (vhdx, vhdx.mrt vhdx.rct).
But then there are extra files of avhdx (4AD ...avhdx & B59...avhdx) seen on the screenshot and I like to get rid of it.
Here is how they are created.
I created new virtual machine using first disk - P...K1-0.vhdx. But when I tried to add 2nd disk (P...K1-1.vhdx), I added it to the wrong existing virtual machine (called TS1).
When I eventually added 2nd disk (P...K1-1.vhdx) to the right virtual machine and started the VM, it complained about "file being currently used ...".
So I rebooted the hyper-V server and was able to start my virtual machine with P...K1-0.vhdx & P...K1-1.vhdx. But my TS1 VM would not start saying "file being currently used ..." and it was put in "saved state". I deleted "saved state" from TS1 and now TS1 is working now.
However during this process, two sets of extra avhdx, MRT and RCT files were created and I like to delete them because they are not used and not intended.
But I just wanted to check to make sure that I can delete them without casuing problems. Fyi, I have not created any snapshot for any VMs in Hyper-V server.
Can I just delete them?
