to remove permanently an HDD from the VirtualBox Media Manager and from the disk there are this set of commands from Linux:

vboxmanage list hdds

 Parent UUID:    base

 Storage format: VDI
 Capacity:       102400 MBytes

Detach the disk from VM

vboxmanage closemedium disk c451287d-4cee-4c6f-bcc1-8fbacadceb53 --delete
0%...10%...20%...30%...40%...50%...60%...70%...80%...90%...100%
