Removing backup checkpoints in Hyper-V

Backup Exec was not removing previous backup checkpoints and caused storage to fill causing VM’s to pause on that storage volume.

Ran the following command to remove old backup checkpoints and merge them to free up space to allow VM’s to resume.

Launch Powershell as Administrator on VMhost

Get-VMSnapshot -VMName ‘nameofvm’ -ComputerName ‘nameofVMhost’ | Remove-VMSnapshot
