XenConvert 2.0.2
Provioning Services Console Version 5.1.1.2950

Hello

I'm trying to make an image from the target device.  
During the XenConvert wizard, I get "The disk capacity must be at least 26914 MB to accomodate the total used space and minimum amount of free space."

I have a C drive (on the top line and is the only drive that shows up) on the target device,
 c:  usage %=56      Usage(GB)=19.71      Capacity(GB)=34.90
Provisioning Services vDisk:usage=-161668896 %      Usage(GB)=19.71      Capacity(GB)=0.00

I'm not sure why it's complaining about the size as the vDisk is 45GB whereas the target device VM is 35 GB with 15GB free so the vDisk size of 45 GB should be plenty.

The above error itself is saying that The disk capacity must be at least 26914 MB to accomodate the total used space and minimum amount of free space.
Whereas you are saying that free disk space is 15 gigs..

15GB is free on the target device out of 35GB so only 20GB is actually being used on the target device.

Where does this message come from?

Provisioning Services vDisk:usage=-161668896 %      Usage(GB)=19.71      Capacity(GB)=0.00

it is showing a very large percentage usage which is negative and a capacity of 0!   What is all that about?

Formatted the mounted vDisk and ran the wizard.  The conversion worked after that.

Its debateable if @Lindows fixed this without help, or was pointed in the right direction first.
