Are you using LVM or a "raw" file on filesystem?

If was not a LVM, maybe you can create one file bigger than the another and 
migrate the VM.

dd if=/dev/zero of=/data/new_vm bs=1M count=20000
mkfs.ext3 ï/data/new_vm
mount, rsync and start the "new" VM on new device...

Or, please, always use LVM.
