    How to delete VHD


    Hey everyone, this is my first post, but I want to get straight to the point.

    I created a VHD a few years back and it has grown in file size. However, these files are now useless to me and I would like to delete them.
    I unmounted the driver and when i try to delete it from my file explorer, it says the file is in use(see screenshot)

    Is there any way to delete this?

    My pc specs
    ProcessorIntel(R) Core(TM) i5-5200U CPU @ 2.20GHz 2.19 GHz
    Installed RAM8.00 GB (7.88 GB usable)
    Graphics Card Intel HD 5500

  2. VHD

    i mean, can i delete the vhd (that contains files) from a drive that it is present in. can it be like Drive C or something like that, that doesn't hv like a physical vhd file in a drive.

    i think i still haven't explained it properly.
