I created several virtual machines using Oracle Virtual Box. The total hard drive spaces these machines took up was ~40GB. I have since deleted these virtual machines from Virtual Box and My Computer is saying I have 58GB free when I should have ~40GB more free after deleting the virtual machines.
- I am on Windows 10.
- I deleted the virtual machines by right clicking the VM then selecting remove. I have then gone to File->Virtual Media Manager and attempted to remove the .vdi files but they are not listed there (so I assume/d they had been deleted in the remove operation).
- I have run the utility Folder Size (that lists all big folders and files on my HD). And I cannot see/find these .vdi or other files that maybe taking up the ~40GB.
- I have emptied my recycling bin
- I have looked in
C:\Users\MYUSER\VirtualBox VMsand there are no VMs/folders in there so I assume Virtual Box has deleted them already
Any advice on how I can fix this?
I believe the cause is bloody Virtual Box not re/un partitioning the harddrive after deleting the VM.
