I have a 2016VM thats reached 50 checkpoints and Im unable to delete them - various errors. It has an attached VHD being used as a data drive. Plan on creating new VM and attaching the data drive VHD to it. When creating the VM and then attaching the data drive VHD I get the message that corruption may occur if the data drive VHD is already attached to another VM.

What would the best course of action be ?

Thank you.
