What is the maximum VHD size in Hyper-V?

The maximum VHD size in Hyper V is 2040GB (8GBs short of 2TB). Should you need more, there is an option. You can utilize passthrough disk to exceed this limitation. This passthrough disk can be a physical disk on the host, or on a SAN. Also, if your are using a SAN, you will lose you Snap Shot capability.
