General access denied error in Hyper-V

This issue occurs if the permissions on the virtual hard disk (.vhd/.vhdx) file or the snapshot file (.avhd/.avhdx) are incorrect. To resolve this issue, perform the following steps:

1. Right click the virtual machine folder (the folder above the “Snapshots”, “Virtual Hard Disks”, and “Virtual Machines” folder), and
go to the “Properties” -> “Security”, select “Virtual Machines” user group, then click “Edit”” button, then select “Virtual Machines” user group.

Note: You see that this user group doesn’t have any rights over the virtual machine folder.

2. Grant all rights to “Virtual Machines”, then click “OK” button.

3. Done!
