Compact Hyper-V VHDX files using PowerShell

I used VMware Workstation for a while, which can automatically compact the virtual hard disk after shutting down the VM, an excellent way of freeing up space on my laptop hard drive. But I switched to using only Hyper-V now. Compacting virtual hard disks is not something you can enable in Hyper-V to run automatically. In this blog post, I will show you how to do this using a script that you can use to do that easily. 🙂
