    Hyper-V Windows License Activation & Checkpoints


    I've made a VM in Hyper-V for Windows 10 Enterprise. In the bottom right it says the license is valid for 90 days and I've created a checkpoint after I ran all the latest updates. My question: if it comes down to day 1, can I just restore the checkpoint and I'll be back up to 90 days? Is this legal? It's for my test environment before rolling out scripts etc.

    :)

    Create and Use Hyper-V Checkpoints in Windows 10  


    PowerShell really is a nice tool to be used with Hyper-V.

    I see you had used default checkpoint names. I like to rename mine to better remember to what point any checkpoint takes me.

    Earlier today I recorded video to be sent to Macrium support. I've had contact with them because an issue with Macrium Reflect CBT and Image Guardian features; they simply break OneDrive Files on Demand feature (OD FOD) in Insider builds 17035 and 17040. To demonstrate it I clean installed W10 on a VM, then reproduced the issue creating checkpoint after each step:

    I like doing it so, making a relatively short video now by applying checkpoints one after another, capturing those few seconds from that step I want to show, then applying next checkpoint and so on.

    Renaming checkpoints with descriptive names tells me exactly which checkpoint I need to / want to apply.

    Hi Kari,

    actually I do this similarly. Just, I like to keep the date/time in name as it is not otherwise shown in Hyper-V Manager.

    So I always create my checkpoints with generated name and then just append some description in Hyper-V Manager.

    Like here in Ubuntu, where I've kept track of nearly every step installing stuff on it... sorry just my paranoia *Wink as I'm a somewhat dummy in Linux.

    Hyper-V doesn't delete checkpoint files

    It certainly does delete them if you use PowerShell with administrator privileges. I've had issues with Hyper-V Manager myself, but didn't find out the reasons.
