Cause

Solution

In Backup Exec 2010 and prior versions, Granular Recovery Technology (GRT) for Agent for Microsoft Hyper-V did not support virtual machines that use dynamic disks, such as spanned, mirrored, striped, or RAID 5 disks. 

Support for GRT backups for GPT volume/disk has been added only for 'Backup Exec Agent for Hyper-V' to Backup Exec 2012 with Service Pack 2.
