P2V using SCVMM error's at select host screen because of disk space requirement

Have you ever seen below error while converting P2V using SCVMM?

There is not enough disk space on the available volumes.
Maximum disk space on the most appropriate volume, accounting for the host resource utilization  (in megabytes): 60766
The virtual machine requirement (in megabytes): 162836
The maximum available space at the time of evaluation, after considering the virtual machine requirements (in megabytes): 139290

I was bit worried after seeing error because currently I am having cluster server with more than 10 gigs of free space and it’s always fine while creating new VM. You don’t need to worry about above error because it simple to convert P2V if you are definitely sure about free space on host. Go to below screen and press next after selecting system drive only.

After selecting above continue with wizard by pressing next till you reach last second tab \ option in wizard “Conversation option”. Once you are there go back to above screen and select all drives that you want to be in virtualised machine and then press “Conversion Information” in the left side of the wizard and finally create to finish wizard. That’s all you have to do if you get above error while converting Physical to Virtual using SCVMM or Microsoft System Centre Virtual Machine Manager 2012.
