Windows Server Backup to Shared External USB on Windows 2012 Hyper-V Server

 I have Windows  2012R2 Hyper-V and a couple of VMs. One of VMs is SBS2011.
 I like to backup entire SBS2011 using Windows Server Backup inside SBS2011 to a shared external USB hard drive on Windows 2012R2 Hyper-V Server.
 When I used to run SBS2011 as a standaline server with 2TB External USB HD, I simply point to 2TB USB HD as backup destination.
 In Virtual Enviroment, since External USB HD is NOT directly attached to SBS2011 VM, I am thinking about attaching External USB HD to Hyper-V Server and create a share.

 So the destiantion of Windows Server Backup (from SBS2011) would be something like this: \\Win2012\ExtUSBHD
 Do you see any problem with this idea?
 Does 2TB partition limit still exist?
