To overcome this message, always choose a different volume from the source one to save recovered files that has sufficient free space.

Always ensure an external device, which is larger than the source media to save your recovered data. In case you don't have any external media then chose a different volume to save recovered files. If you have an external media then kindly format it once after backing up all the data from it and then try to save the files on that formatted external media.
