Can a Hyper-V virtual disk be deleted

I just noticed that I have a virtual disk left over from a virtual machine that no longer exists.  It has a date modified of today.  If it is not being used why is the date current?

Can it be deleted?

Are you sure it's not linked to a VM ?

All the VM's listed with the appropriate virtual disk.  The one I want to delete is not listed as  VM.  I vaguely recall having a VM with the name of the virtual disk.

I would recommend MOVE rather than Delete, if the object disk is in use you will not be able to MOVE, give it a few days, and then delete.

I see what happened.  I originally created a VM called Etrust.  Then changed it's name to Printserver.  So the Etrust disk is connected to the Printserver VM.  There is another disk called Printserver tht has a date of 4/2013.  So that one can be deleted.
How do I delete it?

Thanks.  I matched the disk to the VM via the settings.  I deleted it from the folder.
