Save Source VHDs During Storage Migration

Q: I'm performing Hyper-V Storage Migrations, but I don't want the source VHDs to be deleted after migration. Is this possible?

A: Yes. Use the move-VMStorage PowerShell cmdlet with the -RetainVhdCopiesOnSource parameter. This will perform the migration but leave the source VHDs in the source location.
