    Hello

    Hyperv virtual machines, accumulate rct and mrt files. I am aware that these are a new addition to Windows Sever 2016 Hyper-V, that allows the tracking of changes between backup operations. I’m concerned that they will be taking up a lot of storage space.

    If I shutdown the VM and delete snapshots then these files disappear.

    However, I noticed that there are no vhdx files being saved as they should be, instead rct & mrt files are being created !!!

    Any help much appreciated.
