  • Looks like you're using Snapshots - delete the snapshots from within Hyper-V Manager and those files should go away. You should not be using snapshots on a production server for very long. Sure, 1-2 weeks, but beyond that they should be deleted so that the files can be merged.

    Also, if this is not snapshots, it may be your backup methods crashed during backup and failed to remove these files. If that's the case, they would be fine to remove.

  • Hi SUdhashu,

    Since WSUS forum is more related about WSUS server and Windows update issues, and seems your questions is related about Hyper-V, you may post on Hyper-V forum for better help:
