How to Convert from Dynamic VHD/VHDX Disk Format to / from Fixed in Hyper-V

In order to convert your VHD or VHDX file from a dynamically growing format to a fixed size format,

you can use the PowerShell and run the Convert-VHD command.

When the VM is offline, you can specify the VHDType parameter and switch to a differencing disk, you can switch between Fixed, Dynamic, and Differencing as needed.

The syntax to convert to a dynamic disk type is as follows:

Convert-VHD –Path c:\VM\my-vhdx.vhdx –DestinationPath c:\New-VM\new-vhdx.vhdx –VHDType Dynamic
