Microsoft File Server Migration Incremental Copy and Not Enough Space

I'm currently using Microsoft File Server Migration 1.2 to migrate files and shares from a 2003 R2 x86 server over to a 2008 R2 x64 server.  I have successfully gotten past the first phase of copy and it's copies everything over.  However, now that I went back and tried to do an incremental copy, the validating settings phase says I don't have enough room.  I can't get past this part of the wizard now to finish it up.

Is there a way to fake out the wizard to think it has enough space to get past this? Or do I need to temporarily expand my drives to give it enough space?

Seems like a good product but it doesn't copy over share permissions and NTFS permissions like Server Migration does.  That's what I really need.
