    That's happened to me a few times. First thing I do is look for any large files (like GB) that I can move to an external HDD. Then after restarting and trying again I get the same message :( I always end up having to archive install (which also fails sometimes) or clean install > bootcamp > transfer data which always works.

    If anyone has a better way let us know.

    It happened to me once so I quit BootCamp and tried again and it worked then!
