C:\ size shrinking after creation of a virtual machine

Windows 7 64Bit

I am unsure of what version of Virtual box it was, but after creating a 30GB (roughly) solid state sized virtual machine it had taken this space out of the overall hard drive space (the partition c:\ had 310GB capacity before I created the Virtual machine, now its around 280GB) I cannot see any other partition on the hard drive (other than the Recovery which already takes 13 GB and a system partition that takes around 700MB) This was about 1 year ago, I hadn't thought much of it till now that my hard drive is pretty much full, i was wondering if you had, had someone with similar problems or is this a single case?

Well, of course the disk size is allocated at some host partition. And if you created a fized-size disk, then the complete hard disk space is allocated immediately. If you used an older version of VirtualBox then the hard disk is located in your User directory, subdirectory .VirtualBox/HardDisks/ or in .VirtualBox/Machines/MACHINE_NAME/

Actually I don't see a bug here. If you really think you observed a bug then feel free to reopen this bug, otherwise please go to our  forums to ask such questions.
