Add separate partition to VM machine

I am using VM Workstation on Windows 8. I have windows 2012 VM that is running low in space.
My windows 8 has C: partition that runs on SSD, I have E: partition that runs on separate regular drive.
WIndows 2012 VM disk files are on SSD drive, but I want to add hard disk  with size of 40 GB to windows 2012 but point it to use the E: drive. I mean the 40 GB will be taken from E: Drive, since it will be used just to hold non dynamic data.

How can I do that in VMware Workstation ?

Just follow this how-to from VMware

You just follow the Add Device > New Hard Disk - wizard and choose the location to store the disk during the creation of it... Step 8

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.
