  • The problem is with deleted space. We are seeing this in our environment too. When users delete files the space does not get reclaimed by the OS. You need to defrag the VHDX and zero out the unused blocks for the OS to reclaim.

    You should implement proper exclusions do avoid profile bloat.

    Especially this one: <Exclude Copy="0">AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Teams\Service Worker\CacheStorage</Exclude>
