    I've got the LiquidFiles deployed in Hyper-V using the dynamically expanding VHDX file. This works fine however there is an issue with reclaiming unused space.

    As you can see in this image, LiquidFiles is showing the system to only be consuming 2.5gb of space - https://i.imgur.com/uc1kRfI.png

    However, the VHDX file on the server is taking up almost 14gb space - https://i.imgur.com/M85fxoN.png

    Whats the best / recommended way to compact this VHDX file ?

    I've tried shutting down the VM and doing a compact in HyperV but it did not work.

    Searching on the internet has led me believe that some sort of 'Zerofree' method is required.

    Please advise.
