Defrag Tools #163 - Virtual Hard Disk (VHD) - Sysinternals Disk2VHD | Defrag Tools

In this episode of Defrag Tools, Chad Beeder and Andrew Richards discuss Virtual Hard Disk (VHD) files. We first dive into what a VHD is, how you can boot from a VHD by configuring bcdedit settings, and we see how they look in Disk Management. We then use Sysinternals Disk2VHD - a quick and easy way to make a VHD from a Physical drive. We also discuss the Volume Shadow Copy Service.Additional Resources:Sysinternals Disk2VHDScott Hanselmen - Guide to Installing and Booting off a VHDTimeline:[00:00] Building 20 and the Channel 9 Studio[02:12] bcdedit - Booting from partition (physical disk) - osdevice|device: partition=C:[04:37] "Choose an operating system" - Physical and Virtual boot devices[06:48] VHD files - *.vhd and *.vhdx[07:45] Fixed Size and Dynamic Size (file grows to the specified size with use)[09:27] Disk Management - diskmgmt.msc or Win-X-K[10:35] bcdedit - Booting from virtual hard disk - osdevice|device: vhd=[D:]\vhd\win10.vhd[11:55]
