Re: Virtual machine question
By the term "Virtual Machine" I assume it uses a "base operating system" (a largely compressed and simplified windows) to access the internet, then access a server that contains your operating system. My further assumption then would be that no, you are most likely not actually storing the OS on your HDD, but the server's.
If it does, infact, get stored on your HDD, then when you remove it, it will free up whatever HDD space it was using.
Hopefully this post brings the thread to life so someone who is a bit more knowledgeable on this subject can confirm the above.
