Hyper-V bug resulting in: Cannot access the data folder of the virtual machine

Is there a fix yet for this issue?

Hyper-v snapshot becomes unusable until you manually edit the corrupted xml after deleting a historical snap shot.

Easily reproducable.  Just delete a historical snap and the .xml gets extra characters resulting in the corrupted state of: Cannot access the data folder of the virtual machine

Work around:   Open xml and scroll to the bottom.   Remove any extra characters from the bottom of the xml.  Normally just one character (‘>’) at the end but can be an "echo"
of the last 1-30 characters.

Then restart the hyper-v and it works till you descide to delete another historical snap.

This issues has been happening for over a year and is reproducable.  Others have had the issue so I am suprised that it hasn’t been addressed yet. 

 

Same as locked issue:
