Disk partitioning

A noob. When installing debian in virtualbox, will the disk partitioning portion of the setup potentially harm my system? It does want to partition the vbox harddisk, so I assume it will not affect my actual system drive, but would like confirmation.

Thanks,
Mike

The VHD is just a file nothing more.
You can partition it.

Thanks Edwin

You’re welcome. Succes with your study!
