Windows 2008 R2 Hyper-V host has low disk space on C: the windows OS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I shutdown a 4 VM's running on this Hyper-V host. It wanted to shutdown and install updates. The low disk error appeared.

    The drives are flashing but the console is frozen for over an hour.   A  back up of the  4 VM's is a year old.

    Ideas?

  • What's frozen windows or Hyper-V? Can you clear some disk space? Have you rebooted?

  • Hi,

    Thanks for posting in our forum!

    1. Trying to clean up disk space and try again, it seems that there is not enough disk space to install updates.

    2. What is the state of the virtual machine now? Can the VMs work fine now?

    3. I cannot understand your description clearly, would you please upload your error screenshot?

    Best Regards,

    Daniel

  • Deleted unused programs to free up space and everything is backup. The C:drive has only 40gb. Looks like I need to move the VM's to another server to rebuild the C:drive

  • Yes, I'd agree. 40 gB was on the small side for 2008 R2 and especially if the VHDs are also on C:\
