I have a vm merge in progress that will not finish because it only has 6 GB of disk free space and the two vhd's to merge are over 350 GB each.  How do I get out of this mess?

    You cannot cancel a merge in progress.
    You need to add more disk space. This can be done by attaching a new physical disk and using the Windows Server feature to extend a volume on another physical disk. See Disk Manager help for more information

    I was able to move the vhd and avhd files to another hard drive with more space and then use the Edit Disk option in the Hyper-V console.
