Windows 10: Hyper-V doesn't delete checkpoint files Solved

    Hyper-V doesn't delete checkpoint files


    Is it normal for Hyper-V to not delete the original checkpoint files when the reference/restore point is deleted in the Hyper-V manager?

    I am just getting my feet wet in the Hyper-V realm and noticed that the AVHDX files take space on my PC even after deleting the checkpoint -- until I manually remove them. Seems rather counterintuitive. Also, can anyone tell me what exactly are VMRS and VMXC files used for? I see them in my Virtual Machines folder.

    Thnx

    It certainly does delete them if you use PowerShell with administrator privileges. I've had issues with Hyper-V Manager myself, but didn't find out the reasons.
