The TechNet How-To is here: Manually Merge AVHDManually Merge AVHD

We always run the process on a separate system with a high performance disk set. As a rule storage is provisioned on the host to the point where the need for double the merge set in storage volume would not be available.

As mentioned, copy the base file over and then run the merge process as per the TechNet article.
