The vhd file extension is associated with Virtual Hard Disk. A disk image for Microsoft Virtual Server. Microsoft has set the Virtual Hard Disk (VHD) file format as the standard for running and managing virtual machines using Microsoft Virtual Server 2005.

These virtual disks are capable of hosting native file systems (NTFS, FAT, exFAT, and UDFS) while supporting standard disk and file operations. VHD API support allows management of the virtual disks. Virtual disks created with the VHD API can function as boot disks.
