    hey all,
    i'm using differencing on one of my vpc and was wondering if there was
    anyway to compact it to make sure it's efficient. i know how to precompact
    and compact one without differencing. just curious.

    No, not without combining the parent and child first in a new VHD.
    You can't compress a differencing disk at this time.

    It is a pain point MS is aware of, but there's no simple solution yet.
