There could be several reasons:
- The virtual machine is still running - make sure it has been shut down
- There is an antivirus on the Hyper-V host server - the VHD location needs to be excluded from the antivirus
- You are managing the Hyper-V host remotely from Windows 7 machine and you don't have enough privileges - connect to the server via Remote Desktop and try doing it from its Hyper-V Manager
- Sometimes it happens for no obvious reason - restart the Hyper-V server if it's possible
