(Windows 10 Pro)
What am I trying to do?
I have a 1TB NVME card which stores all my virtual machines for Hyper-V - nothing else. I am running out of disk space and would like to transfer existing VMs to a new 2TB NVME card. The VM's won't copy - something to do with the actual vhdx file that it doesn't like - see below for more details:
I am unable to copy and paste a vhdx file from my current drive (1TB Samsung NVME) to my new drive (2TB Samsung NVME).
I have tried:
- Copy/Paste Windows explorer
- 'Move' command in Hyper-V Manager
- 'Export' command in Hyper-V Manager
- Powershell (administrator) use Export-VM command
- NVME clone using a piece of hardware that should clone NVME cards - it can do this without being connected to a PC - as it has its own power supply. Can be bought off Amazon fairly cheap.
The error message I get when trying to export my VM (called PythonDev) to my bigger drive is:
If I try and copy and paste I get the following error (but is still the same underlying problem I think). I have narrowed it down to actually copy the vhdx file - nothing I can do will allow me to copy that file:
Here is the Powershell error:
Can anyone help?
