Error removing hard drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created virtual drive and attached to a virtual windows server 2003 R2. What I wanted to do was copy some files there, then remove the disk and attache the disk to another virtual server.

    I could copy the files and attach the drive to another machine but now I cannot remove the disk from any of the virtuals. I go to Configuration, and under IDE Controler I try to remove the disk and I get:

    'Error removing hard drive.  Failed to remove device 'Microsoft Synthetic Disk Drive'
    'Cannot be deleted because a logical disk object is still attached to it'

    Any ideas on how to remove the drive when I don't need it any more?
