try to make a VHD but it wasn't successful

Sir Brink

Need a hand for I have try to make a VHD but it wasn't successful VHD did not appear in I: then the .vhd save file was still on my desktop.

The 1st attemp that I make was no space and then I created a 2nd folder the VHD Partition. Now, I wanna remove the 2 folder on the Desktop for I can't delete showing it is a System file.

I'd like to try this in other OS.

Here is the screenshot of the file.

Hello Adamus,

Did you use the tutorial below to create the VHD? If not, could you give more details about this?
Virtual Hard Disk - Create and Attach VHD
Is the VHD attached and showing in the Computer window with a drive letter? If not, then I'm not sure how this is related to this tutorial. If so, then you will need to unattach it before you will be able to delete the VHD file.

Adamus,

Restart the computer, and see if you are able to delete the two VHD folders on your desktop. If not, then what is the exact error message it gives you?

I have done restart several times but sad to say VHD was not visible.

1st attempt error
* File has been damage or corrupted

2nd attempt
* there is no error and unallocated VHD appears but then Drive was not in the Volume

The tutorial you've posted on your reply is the one that I use. I do not know exactly how it happen for I expect that I can make VHD.

Adam,

I'm sorry, but I need more details on exactly what you were trying to do and with what. Which steps did you use in the tutorial below to try and create and attach the VHD? Was this a new or existing VHD?

Virtual Hard Disk - Create and Attach VHD

Just as a reminder, that once the VHD is attached and shows up as a drive letter in Computer, it will only be in Computer for the current session. Once you restart the computer, it will automatically be unattached. You can only attach the VHD in the currently running Windows.
