This may be caused by a backup application, which did not release the VM's virtual disk after completing the backup.
In this case please check whether a stale process is running on the backup server, or - in case hot-add is used - check whether the backup server, or a backup-proxy still has the VM's virtual disk mounted. If so, unmount it without selecting the delete from disk option!
