TIL HyperV naming and file location

If you are using HyperV as your virtualization host this is a small quirk that can cause annoyance. When you are going through the new VM creatation wizard it asks you where to create the new VM. It seems like this is the folder where HyperV will put the XML file that holds details about the VM setup, but it’s not. It actually creates a sub-folder called Virtual Machines inside the selected folder for the XML files and other metadata.

If you are trying to get a naming convention going make sure you include this sub-folder in your convention.
