[PVE-User] Disk migration gone totally wrong

Hi all,

On Wednesday we migrated a VM disk from a local storage to another local 
storage. I have the task history and apparently it was successful, BUT 
it seems the new storage ended with a blank, totally sparsed raw file. 
Migration was run with delete source, so we recovered today from backup 
+ git. (No data was lost and no bits were injured! ;)  )

The only strange thing I can see is that the task did not reach 100% in 
the log:

TASK OK

Any idea about what happened? The VM was stopped, as a previous attempt 
to migrate the disk with the VM running failed (the attempt was a day 
earlier and the VM continued to work though all day on Wednesday)

Any idea what happened? This is a Dell T610 with H200 RAID controller. 
Disk was moving from a RAID1 volume to another, configured as a 
Directory storage, Source storage is ext3, destination storage is ext4. 
We never experienced a data loss like this moving disks/VMs...
