I have a Hype-V setup which I've found myself supporting with very little real knowledge of the system. On the whole it's been pretty simple, however I've got a bit of a curly problem right now. One of the VMs has run out of space and paused as a result. The Type is "Dynamically expanding virtual hard disk" which is reporting as being 113Gb with a maximum size of 121Gb (I allocated more space to it, but this didn't change anything). Looking at the storage, it's got 119GB, 0% free. The drive that the VM is stored on though has a bunch of free space, but it's all running on a SAN so I don't know how that affects everything.
My question is, is there any way for me to get access to the contents of the virtual drive to delete the huge file my team-mate has accidentally created in there? I can see the big .VHD file on the server, but obviously can't open it. I have no snapshots of this VM, and possibly no backups, and there's some licenced software on there that's a pain in the butt to install, so a plan of action that doesn't start with "Nuke it and start again" would be good.
