Why do we want to connect hyper-v vm to a physical hard drive?

I'm new to this job.
We have a file server with all network shared drives. That server is a vm in a single hyper-v host with cluster. And the storage is local -- no SAN, etc.
I noticed this vm has two hard drives connected:
1. IDE Controller 0 : hard drive servername.vhdx
2. ScSI Controller:   Hard Drive: Physical drive Disk 6 7448.00 GB Bus 0 Lun 1 Target 0

Can you tell me if there is specific reason we want to connect to the physical hard drive instead of using virtual drives?
