i am running Hyper-V on Windows 8, with few Virtual machines like XP,Ubuntu, etc.. i have set hard drive to be on demand, so it's starting small.
Now i have downloaded few files on my Virtual XP, i noticed that hard disk used space is about 12 GB, so i decided to delete some files, after deleting even from recycle bin, the hard drive is now around 6GB, but the problem is when i checked the read size of the VHDX it's still around 12GB !!
i tried to power off and edit/compact the hard drive, but it's still the same size!!
any help is appreciated.
