VM fails to start in Hyper-V server

Last Modified: 2019-11-21
DC1 VHDX FileDC1 VM SettingsDC1 CheckpointDC1 Start ErrorError when entering DC1.vhdx in Virtual Hard DiskI have Windows HyperV Server 2012R2 with a virtual machine "DC1". This morning, during windows server backup, the building lost power.
When electricity was returned, DC1 VM failed to start stating that it was missing DC1_69E13A45-C913-43CA-887F-1D3481F975B8.avhdx file. But I could not find that avhdx anywhere on the hard drive. Since DC1.vhdx does exist, I tried to replace DC1_69E13A45-C913-43CA-887F-1D3481F975B8.avhdx with DC1.vhdx, but it fails.

Can I just click "Remove" button in the DC1 VM Settings screen?
