Merges a differencing virtual hard disk (VHD) with its corresponding parent VHD. The parent VHD will be modified to include the modifications from the differencing VHD.
|This command is only applicable to Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.|
A VHD must be selected and detached for this operation to succeed. Use the select vdisk command to select a VHD and shift the focus to it.
This parameter modifies the parent VHD. As a result, other differencing VHDs that are dependent on the parent will no longer be valid.
