I'm trying to virtualize my physical computer using VMware Worstation 12 Pro.  When I click on File/Virtualize a Physical Machine, I get part way thru the process and then it fails because it's trying to include my additional hard drives.  I do not want it to include my D and E drives, but I do not see a way to exclude them.  I suppose I could disconnect them, but I'd like to save the vmdk file to one of my internal drives.  Any way to do this without disconnecting my internal D and E drives?

I do have VMware vCenter Converter Standalone Client installed on my computer.
