Jeff Cody - March 6, 2013, 2:47 p.m.
This is based on Microsoft's VHDX specification:
    "VHDX Format Specification v0.95", published 4/12/2012
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=29681

These structures define the various header, metadata, and other
block structures defined in the VHDX specification.

Yes, thanks (on both counts).
