Dynamic Disks and Hyper-V VMs… Not So Much!

As per here, disks in Hyper-V VMs should be Basic (not Dynamic), or they will start up as inactive when you boot the VM. So, you have to reactivate the disk every time you reboot the VM. This also causes any shares on the volume(s) to disappear.

Don’t ask me how I know this…

Also don’t ask me if I am going to enjoy performing the ‘fix’ on a disk with over 2TB of data on it…
