I recently rebuilt my host Win10 machine and need to restore the Virtual Machines I had created under Hyper-V.  I kept all the machines and their settings on a separate drive, but cannot get Hyper-V to recognize them.


I tried restoring (and it's various options).  Each attempt presents an error  "could not be realized due to validation error".


I also tried creating a new machine, using the old .vhdx hard drives.  Hyper-V gives me an error regarding "uncompressed and unencrypted drives".


I want to recover the VMs as they were last used.  Some are Win10 machines that are already activated.
