    Hello!
    I am in pretty terrible situation. My goal was to move my Win10 VM to new SSD because I couldn't run it anymore because Mac always showed me that message where it says that you don't have enough space, you should free some. So I have archived my Windows 10 VM, copied that .pvmz archive to ssd and tried to open it and I got "Duplication Mac adresses detected..." message, with two options "use current" or "create new". I have chosen create new but VM is not loading - I get "Unable to connect Hard disk 1" message and "There is no OS installed on this virtual machine". So then I tried to open the original .pvmz VM archive that is stored at /user/parallels/ but I could't because it said that I need extra 35Gb of free space! but I have none! Like literally none, I have deleted completely everything, only bare Mac system files with few apps are left! How to open .pvmz copied to external SSD? Or I don't know, what should I even do now to unarchive and load my Win10 VM?
    I have Mojave, Parallels 14.

    Somehow managed to free up 2Gb of space and after that was able to unarchive original VM and then transferred it to new SSD. Problem solved
