New MS vhd format

Aug 18, 2011 at 10:00 PM

This is probably a discussion until more about the format becomes available, but MS is releasing a new VHD format in Win8 'vdhx' which supports drives larger than 2TB and graceful powerfail recovery.  I don't know (yet) of any public docs on the new format, but it's something to start tracking.  I will add to the thread as I find more info.
