Remove Windows 8 preview

I installed Win 8 preview on my system using Oracle VM, however it loaded the virtural HD on a disk I didn't want the VM or Win 8 preview on. Is there a way to delete all of this and get my HD space back?

From here, Chapter 1. First steps

Quote:
To remove a virtual machine which you no longer need, right-click on it in the Manager's VM list select "Remove" from the context menu that comes up.
A confirmation window will come up that allows you to select whether the machine should only be removed from the list of machines or whether the files associated with it should also be deleted.
The "Remove" menu item is disabled while a machine is running.
