DPM 2010 Backup Hyper V

I am trying to backup a 2008 R2 server using DPM 2010. I want to be able to backup using child partition snapshot instead of steady state because I need to backup the server a couple times a day while in production.  The problem here is I notice if you have 2 virtual hard drives on this VM is will not allow me the option to backup using child partition snapshots.  I need to have the 2 virtual drives on the machine. (This is a file server).

How do I get around this or is there something I need to verify or do differently to make this work?

If its a file server, then why not just backup using a DPM agent in the guest ?

Neither answer resolved the issue.  I already verified the 1st response. I can google the answer too!  All of those were correct.  

I resolved the issue by creating 1 VM drive and partitioning 2 drives on the .vhd.

Thanks for the repsonses anyways.
