Unrecognized dynamic disk

Dear,

Would help to solve this problem.

I have a backup that is realize directly from VMware 5.5 environment, where you have a server with a disk that as Dynamic. Backup this machine, contain three drive (C:\, D:\, E:\), but only two (C:\ and E:\) are entering the backup.

When I ask to restore this D:\ drive does not appear to recovery.
In a Granular Recovery Unit D:\, I will not be able to accomplish.
I await your return.

See below.
