I am on the new management site for Virtual Machine. I created the machine and i am not able to mount more that 1023GB storage which is added from the Virtual machine (Attached an empty disk).
How do i mount 100TB disk onto a VM and what is the correct way to do it.

At all you cannot mount Windows Azure Drive bigger than 1TB, cause Windows Azure Drive uses Page Blob as it storage and Page Blob has its limitation to 1TB per each.
Each VM can mount up to 16 drives, so you can have 16 x 1TB of mounted space to VM.
Take a look at these Windows Azure Drive whitepapers
And big article on Windows Azure Drives you'll find at Codeproject

Is there any way at all to mount a larger drive?
We have some backup software that we want to run on a virtual machine and it needs to write to a drive letter. How can we have it write to a BLOB which will grow over time? We need about 12TB to start.

Did you ever get an answer to this? I've been considering doing the same thing... sending disk-based backups to a VM on Azure and I too need more than 16TB.
The best solution that I could find for Windows Azure was to buy a compatible Cloud Storage Gateway, like Riverbed Whitewater, but some of the one's I'm interested in (Twin Strata Cloud Array) doesn't work with Azure Storage. But in either case, I don't personally like the CSG solutions to this. I'd rather just get something like DoubleTake and replicate the local data to the VM disk in Azure.
