In this emerging digital world, the size of our hard disk matters the most. We always have a lot of data to store and we always face the fact that our disk space is low. So today enlarge your hard disk space up to 64 TB no matter what size of the actual hard disk you’re using and obviously you can use it in your way.is showing you a technique by which you can
Follow the below given easy step by step instructions for creating your own Virtual Hard Disk (VHD):
- First of all, open your “My Computer” or simply press “Start+E” button from the keyboard.
- Now, Right click the mouse on “My Computer” from the left panel and click on “Manage“.
- Then, The Computer Management window will get open.
- Now, Click on “Disk Management” from the “Storage” section and then click on Action >> Create VHD.
- Fill the location as “F:\Hackagon HDD.vhdx” >> Choose the size in MB, GB or TB then type the Disk’s Size in blank space >> Choose the virtual hard disk format as “VHDX” >> Choose the virtual hard disk type as “Dynamically Expanding” and then click “OK“. (Remember, we are using here F:\ drive for creating VHD, but you can choose any drive letter you have.)
- In Disk Management, you will see the virtual drive listed as Unallocated space.
- To begin using it, you’ll need to Right-click and select “Initialize Disk“.
- In the “Initialize Disk window” >> Opt for “GPT(GUID Partition Table)” and hit “OK“.
- Now, this is the time to create a Volume by Right-clicking the unallocated space and select “New Simple Volume“.
- Now, the New Simple Volume Wizard gets open. So, click on “Next” following all the instructions till the completion of the wizard.
- And guess what!! You are done! . . A drive is waiting for you in your my computer section to store your valuables.
Advantages: Significant benefits result from the ability to boot a physical computer from a virtual hard drive:
Ease of deployment: IT organizations can deploy standardized, ‘pre-built’ configurations on a single VHD. As an example, software engineering organizations which need a specific set of tools for a particular project could simply ‘pull’ the appropriately-configured VHD from a network location.

- Backup-and-Restore: Changes to the contents of a VHD (such as infection by a virus, or accidental deletion of critical files) are easily undone.
- Multi-User Isolation: Many current operating systems support having multiple users, but offer varying degrees of protection between them (e.g., one user of the OS could become infected by a virus which infects other users, or make changes to the OS which affect other users). By giving each user their own version of the operating system—say, by creating for each of them a differencing VHD based on a base installation of the OS—changes to any particular child image would have no effect on any of the other child images.
