Hi There

I am using windows 10 Pro, and had a virtual machine installed using Hyper-V with two virtual HDD in that VM.

Recently I had some problem with my Windows 10 OS and had to reset my windows with keeping all the files and settings, and it installed a new windows 10 for me, and also I cleaned the old windows folders.

Now the problem is, the old virtual hard disk space still showing as used within my current disk space,
Total HDD capacity: 500gb
Total current file size: 30.9gb
Free space: 342gb only!!!

The reset of the space was allocated to virtual machine in my previous windows installation, and is there any way that I can delete the VHD and have the space into my current disk space?

Your advice is highly appreciated

Thank you

You can delete the folder... assumes you don't want the data on it.
You can open/ load the vhd and use it.

p.s. that old windows folder can also be removed if you don't want the data on it.
