Windows 7 Reference Image size grows consistently RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good morning,

    i'm running a seperate build system and for my build task sequence i stick to Johan Arwidmarks Tutorial:

    I've set up a Hyper-V VM which runs once a month from a task schedule and starts my Windows 7 Build Task Sequence (via CS.ini and Machine ID).

    Yesterday i've run this Task Sequence for testing multiple times, and every time my captured .wim File gets about 500 MB bigger ???

    - First run ~ 5GB (it took about 2 hours)
    - Next run ~ 5,5 GB
    - Next run ~ 6 GB

    and so on....

    It's always the same TS, same Updates installed, same Applications. Every time the VM starts i delete the old disk and create a new one. So why is my .wim image size growing??? I have no idea...

    Greetings from Germany :-)
