What is UvhdCleanupBin? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hello,

    Can someone explain me what the C:\users\UvhdCleanupBin folder is and what it does on a Windows server 2012 terminal servers?

    I know it has something to do with the "profile disks (VHDX files)", but that's all...

    Unfortunately, I find nothing about this on the Internet.

    Can anyone help me?

    Thanks!

  • Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Windows Server Forum.

    Yeah, UvhdCleanupBin is a hidden folder and stored under RDS server 2012 (C:\Users folder). As per my research, as the name suggest it will store the .vhdx file data for the particular user. 

    Hope it helps!

    Thanks.

    I can't tell you what this folder is for, but i had the same problem that it took my disk space. I deleted all subfolders with a older modify date. Got my diskspace back and it works fine.

  • Hi,

    in my test environment all subfolders and files of folder uvhdCleanupBin are getting deleted after a user logs of from the terminal server.

    I also had a case where the subfolders wont get cleaned up properly and the folder was growing untill no free space was available.
    In my case there was a problem with the default user profile (C:\Users\Default) which contained some windows store cache files under AppData\Local\Packages\winstore_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\Cache\0.

    This cache files could not be cleaned up from the user profiles stored at uvhdCleanupBin after a user logs off.

    I solved this problem with deleting the subfolders from C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Packages\winstore_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\ and then deleting all subfolders and files in uvhdCleanupBin
