    Thank you for your question and reaching out. I can understand you are having query related to .vhdx size.

    Please note that .vhdx file is virtual disk file if its fixed then It will take Entire allocated size to .vhdx and if its Dynamic disk then it was take only spaced used inside the .vhdx
