I virtualized an application server (AS02) using Symantec Backup Exec system Recovery. When the virtualization was complete I had  two virtual disks as follow: As02_C_E_Drive.vhd and As02_F_Drive.vhd.
I am using Windows 2008R2-64 runing Hyper-v as a host for virtual servers.
I created a new vitual machine,  with the option of using an existing virtual hard disk (AS02_C_E_Drive.vhd), wich hold the OS and the program files. Evething looks normal with the execption tha my data drive  (F) is missing. How can I add the drive F to my server, which in this case is the virtual disk AS02_F_Drive.vhd.

Thank you in advance for your help

With the Virtual Machine (Virtual Server) in shutdown state, go into its properties and select Add hardware and then select hard drive. You can then browse to the vhd path and select it. Apply the settings, and start the server.

Hope that helps.
