Hyper-V - Two VHDX files for one server

Is it possible to have two VHDX files for a single virtual server on Hyper-V. One would be the C volume and the other the D volume

I am converting a physical server to a virtual server using StorageCraft and I don't see how to get the C and D volumes convert together.

I tried using other another program but that failed. I was able to convert the C drive using storagecraft

Of course. You can add a large amount of VHDXs to a VM in Hyper V.

There are many options, you can open the VM settings (If you go to the SCSI controller) you can add new drives to the VM while it is working without any issue. You can add existing VHDX, covered VHDXs from another hypervisor, or create new empty VHDXs.

By the way, you can convert each disk separately. Be aware, that for converting the C drive you will need to make it booting the computer from a different OS. i.e. the mini OS present with StorageCraft.
