There are 2 accounts you can use when using Windows 10, a Microsoft account and a Local account, I always switch to a Local account, but if you want to add/buy an app, you have to be using the MS account.

You can use a local account and add/buy apps but you will need to login to the store with your MS account.

The issue is that some people have reported that W10 keeps transmitting data, even though (they claim that) the Privacy settings have been set to NOT send data.
Even when told not to, Windows 10 just can't stop talking to Microsoft | Ars Technica UK

Note:
I haven't confirmed whether or not, this is true.

I wanted to create the VM on my HDD (drive E) but it looks like it's on the SSD (drive C).

For VM, I use VMWare Player in a W7 Host OS, and with that i can specify where the VM Guest OS's are installed.
I'm not sure what VM software you use in the VM HOST.
Posting screen prints of what you see might help with this.

All files related to Oracle VirtualBox are located in "Users/Harry/". I installed Windows 10 (preview edition) set the disk amount to 32GB (default in VirtualBox) and it's on my C drive. How can I have the guest OS on my E drive? I didn't see an option while setting up the VM nor was it in the VirtualBox pdf.

I have VMWare Player so i can't help with Oracle VirtualBox
Wait for others that use Oracle VirtualBox for more help.

I installed the Windows 10 preview edition from an ISO (build 10565). It wants me to enter a product key but I don't have one.
