    Both .VHD and .VHDX are MS Hyper-V files, You can use Hyper-V's Disk Edit to convert .VHD's to .VHDX's not sure about the reverse :confused:

    But it won't make much difference, as the main advantages of .VHDX files are their size and partition types.
    Using either would probably mean formatting your .VHD to use it. So creating a new .VHDX and copying the files across from the .VHD maybe a lot easier.

    There are dozens of ways to do it one of them is the PS command Convert-VHD which is available if you have the HV role installed.

    Another obvious way is using a cloning SW inside the guest OS (acronis, paragon, easus...)
