Parallels Failed to Back up the Virtual Machine

It would seem that no one else has seen this Parallels 5 error dialog:

Failed to back up the virtual machine.

There is no more free space for a virtual machine backup. Free some disk space or select another destination for the backup.”

I have got plenty of space thank you. You are somehow mistaken. No answers yet. I just skipped the backup because I already have it backed up elsewhere.

Update: Oh great. I just saw this error:

“The virtual machine cannot be started due to a critical error.

Contact the Parallels support team for assistance.”

However I have bravely tried again and we’ll see how we go.
