User profile disk (.vhdx) files increasing frequently RRS feed

  • Question

  • In windows server 2012 R2 RDS farm user profile disk (.vhdx) files increasing frequently that causes lack of free space on storage location where the UPD files located. Every day approximately 10-20GB space filled on storage where the UPD locates. When mount and checking vhdx within them the amount of data is much smaller than the size of vhdx disk. Is there any way to prevent increasing UPD disks frequently or reduce/release/reclaim disk space on UPD vhdx files?

  • Hi,

    Please check user’s UPD file size and confirm that if there is abnormal file which is bigger than others.

    Tool mentioned in “Sidder - Quickly see which User Profile Disk belongs to which domain user” will provide you friendly user interface to check users UPD:

    Also, as you had mentioned that usage space grows every day, please compare each UPD file size of two or three days and find the one which grows abnormal.
