Hello again,

Subsequent to solving my last problem, I have come across another which I am finding it hard to troubleshoot.

I have a differencing disk which, when added to a VM through the settings dialog adds fine and works perfectly when starting up. However, when I try to script the attaching of the disk to a VM, I get an error come up that states no drives are found. Since it is possible to add via the Hyper-V console, I know this not to be true!

I have included the cmdlet and switches I have used to import the disk. Please note that I have checked the file path about 100 times and what is there is a direct copy of its path in file explorer.

Im hoping one of you guys will be able to spot something simple I have missed off!

Many Thanks
Andy
