    Windows machines in repair loop after deleting/merging snapshots

      Hi all,


      On a number of recent occasions, I have deleted snapshots of a Windows server and Windows 10 desktop only to find that when I boot up the VMs they immediately start the Windows repair/recovery process. The deletion/merge process always completes without error.


      The most recent one was a Domain Controller which went into repair wizard with an error stating that ntoskrnl.exe file was missing or corrupt.


      Windows repair can't fix it either


      I've been forced to buy a backup drive to hive off my VM's before I try to do any snapshot cleanup in case it kills my VM


      All my VM's are shutdown when I take the snapshots
