The term 'datastore’ is one that many of you who work with VMware are familiar, but which doesn’t really translate to the world of Microsoft’s Hyper-V. “Since Hyper-V does not require a different formatting of the underlying physical disk structure like VMFS(VMware’s proprietary disk format) we are able to browse the ‘datastore’ with File Explorer(In Windows 8/Server 2012…formerly known as Windows Explorer).”
“Who said that?”
That quote was from my friend Tommy Patterson, who writes about datastores and how they compare to the file system structures used in Hyper-V in Part 4 of our “20+ Days of Server Virtualization” series. In his article he describes the locations of the various components that define and make up a Hyper-V virtual machine, and even provides a script to help you quickly locate filesystem locations for your virtual machine bits.
