Which of the following statements best describe the features of a fixed-size VHD? Each correct answer
represents a complete solution. (Choose two.)

A. It offers better performance by eliminating the fragmentation associated with the growing file.

B. It has a set amount of hard disk space and that amount does not change.

C. It uses the space that is being used currently by the VHD.

D. It provides a way to set up the VHD if hard drive space is limited on the server.

Explanation:
Fixed-size VHDs have a set amount of hard disk space and that amount does not change. Fixed size
means that each VHD is set to a specific hard drive storage space and that space is taken by the system
even if the VHD is less than what is set. As an example, if 16GB is designated to a fixed-size VHD, then all
16GB will be taken by VHD on the hard disk immediately – regardless of how much the system is actually
using.
The fixed-size VHD option offers better performance by eliminating the fragmentation associated with the
growing file.
Incorrect Answers:
C, D: Dynamic VHDs only use the space that is being used currently by the VHD. So if a dynamic VHD is
set to 20GB but the VHD is currently using only 10GB, then 10 GB is all that is currently being used by the
dynamic VHD. This is the way that a user wants to set up his VHD if hard drive space is limited on the
server.
