Using Invoke-NaVirtualDiskSpaceReclaim to reclaim space on running virtual machines


Toolkit 2.4 introduces Invoke-NaVirtualDiskSpaceReclaim to perform space reclamation on VHD and VHDX virtual disks.  The attached script uses Get-NaHyperV and Invoke-NaVirtualDiskSpaceReclaim along with cmdlets from the Hyper-V module to perform space reclamation.

Feel free to modify the script to suit your needs, just be sure to share any cool additions with the community!
