How to replicate multiple Hyper-V VM's to multiple locations on the same target host

I have a backup server that I want to replicate many Hyper-V VM's to.  This backup server has multiple hard drives.

But it seems like I can only designate a single location on the backup server to be the "location to store Replica files".

Is there a way to use all my hard drives on the backup server to receive Hyper-V replicas?

if the backup server is Windows 2012, you may consolidate the multiple drives into one large volume in order to back up more VMs under a single backup location.

the following blog posts give the details you need to merge the volume yourself.



hope it helps,
