I am getting this error when migrating machines.
There is insufficient disk space on the volume c:\ to complete placement of the virtual machine

I am migrating from drive E to Drive D on the 2008 H-V machine I am migrating to.  I may have to try it several times before it will mygrate.  I have ine now it will not migrate.

there are two places in hyper v to set default paths for migration

open hyper V manager> Hyper V settings

change the values for VHD path and Virtual Machine path

you can do this in SCVMM too

It did not help. the defaults were already set. I exported then imported the VM.
