Failover Cluster Quorum Disk Shows as VM Storage Resource

Hi, I have a couple of issues with a VM running on a Failover Cluster.
The issues are that the server cannot be live migrated to another FCM host without restarting and the VM Startup Priority cannot be changed from High to any other setting without error.

What I have noticed is the Failover Cluster Quorum disk appears as a storage resource in Failover Cluster Manager.
It does not appear as a storage resource on any other VM.
As the Startup Priority error ( Error Code 0x80070057) may relate to storage, I suspect the Quorum disk appearing as a storage resource may be causing both issues.

In the VM settings, I can't see anything that ties in with the cluster quorum disk.
Can anyone advise why it is listed as a storage resource and how I remove it?

Any help appreciated.

    Hello @M_M

    In my experience if its only issue with one VM then just create new VM same Name and same resource settings then .vhdx of the old VM to this and do live migrate.
