VMware converter fails...

Hi ALl,

Having some really frustrating issues with VMconveter 6.2, when trying to V2V a 2008 server of about 5TB from an old scale environment to ESXi 6.7. The initial attempt failed at 96% with the error "unable to create VSS snapshot of the source volume(s) error code 259.

All subsequent tried have finished around the 30 % mark with the error "An error occurred during the conversion: 'BlockLevelVolumeCloneMgr::CloneVolume: detected a write error during the cloning of volume \windowsbitmapdrivervolumeID

Some of the logs are below happy to provide more, the destination is a VVOL datastore and the link is acceptable
