How do I safely remove a virtual disk

I have a Virtual server running Windows 2008 R2.  This server has a primary C: partition (virtual disk1) and a secondary partition E: (virtual disk 2) that we oversized when when we build the server.  I just added a third smaller partition by creating another virtual disk (virtual disk 3) and was able to move/mirror all the files over to that partition and then swap drive letters.  Now I want to safely remove the previously oversized disk.  Is this as simple as powering down the server, going into the Virtual Machine settings, selecting the Hard disk and clicking Remove?   I'm just being cautious because this is a production server.  Thanks
