Virtual Hard Disk (VHD) is a file format standard which maps logical hard disk contents to a physical disk image format, which can then be more efficiently stored in a variety of different storage types, such as file systems or logical volumes.
VHDs are container files storing block metadata alongside a virtual disk's contents, in a single disk image. The metadata enables advanced storage backend capabilities, such as thin provisioning, disk image snapshotting, and coalescing of differencing disks. . Libvhd is a library to access VHD format metadata. It provides disk image initialization, inspection and manipulation to both VHD user utilities and the VHD disk driver in Blktap.
