    Video: Hyper-V Differencing Disks

    Last Saturday, 8th of December, we had one of our TenForums Live webcasts. The topic was Hyper-V, and I had prepared a presentation / demonstration about how to use Differencing Disks to save both storage space and time.

    Although the webcast was recorded, it was too hard to edit the footage because lots of on & off topic chat going on, questions and answers and so on. I decided to make a "clean" capture instead of posting that video.

    You geeks who participated, please do not take this wrong; it is completely OK to chat and interrupt presentations with clarifying questions. I just thought that the topic is important, and wanted to make a bit better video.

    Video description on YouTube:

    How to use Hyper-V Differencing Disks to save storage space and time when creating new virtual machines.

    Please post all comments on TenForums: Video: Hyper-V Differencing Disks - Windows 10 Forums

    It's probably better to use the webcast to find out questions that might get asked, then they can be covered in the clean video, anyhow

    Good video Kari
