Why can I not delete a VHD file in Windows 8.1 or 8?


The solution is simple to delete a locked or used VHD in Windows 8.1 or 8!



If you have clicked a VHD file in Explorer (double-click), this action will directly mount the VHDs as a virtual disk! The VHD is in use by the operating system as a mounted drive!

If the VHD in Windows 8.1/8 is mounted, the VHD cannot be deleted too! (see image 1 arrow 1...)

If you want to change this, you must first eject the VHD via Windows Explorer. Then the VHD file can be deleted  without any problems!

See this:
... The ejection of the VHD over the MS Explorer in Windows 8.1!
... Unmount (eject) the VHD over the disk management in Windows 8!
