Uninstall VM Ware Fusion and Get Allocated Space Back

Hello Experts,

I installed VM Ware Fusion a long time ago on my Mac so I could still access some of my applications on Windows.

At any rate, when I installed it I allocated 200 GB to it.  I no longer use it and want to uninstall it and get my 200 GB back.  Can I simply uninstall the program and get my space back or do I have to do more.  The way I understand it VM Ware partitions your HD when you install it.

VMWare does not partition your drive. It creates a virtual drive in a folder called VMWareMachines at the root of your hard drive. Just delete the folder after you delete VMWare.
The vendor has an article on their support site how to step through the process in the right way
