I run the VHD tool and get the following error, can anyone help?

Just in the process of doing this now. Is there any chance the merge will error out once it has begun? Have you experienced this behaviour yourself or did you find the possible soloution just through net research?

Manually merging can solve this is as a last resort. please make sure you have a backup ofALL files before starting this procedure.

If you also do not feel comfortable and you have no backup, and the data is irreplaceable, place a Support Call with Microsoft.
