I have 2 VHDs which are members of a RAID-0 to create a 3 TB volume. We deleted a lot of the data from this RAID and I need to free up some space the VHDs are taking, about 1.5 TB. I tried using the Hyper-V manager to resize them but it won't give me any option to do this.
This is how the system is setup.
- Server 2008 R2
- 1.5TB each VHD
- Both VHD are raid 0 to make 3TB
- Fixed VHD's
I tried almost everything to shrink this VHDs. There is no space on Hyper-V to create new VHD to transfer the files.
- I try using Hyper v to edit disk which didnt work. Then try to compac the disk which again didnt work.
- I also shrink disk within the server but that didnt made any difference.
- I also try vhd resizer program but that did shrink the vhd but when you login to system you see same size.
