Hyper-V - difference between Save and Pause

  • Gérald Barré

The Save and Pause functions appear to have the same behavior: suspend the virtual machine. The difference is in the RAM. The Save function writes the contents of the VM's RAM to the hard disk. The released RAM can therefore be used by other VMs. With the Pause function only the CPU is paused, so the RAM used by the VM can not be used by another VM.
