[Users] VM with stateless snapshot won't start

If a failure happened and the stateless vm has shut down without delete 
of the snapshot, the next time you will try to run it we will try to 
delete the snapshot.
from the engine log, it seems that there is a problem deleting the 
snapshot because of quota.
can you please try to disable the quota and try to run the vm again?
Please note that the first time you will run it after disabling the 
quota, the snapshot should be deleted but the vm will still not start. 
only after the snapshot is deleted you will be able to run the vm again.
