I have issue where I have to move my VMs to another datastore so that I can delete the RAID and rebuild it (there is an issue with the time stamps on the disks).  I created a new volume with 1.7TB and some of the VMs trnasfered over correctly.  But now for some reason I am getting an error Insufficient disk space on datastore when trying to move a VM with a 300GB virtual disk and only 2GB of memory.  I have 775GB of space left on my new volume and I do not understand why it will not move.  I was able to move a VM with 200GB virtual disk and 8GB of memory.

Can someone please help me

Thank you for all of your help in advance
