    Yeah, I'm not sure why they changed that for trusted (verified) PCs. You used to be able to remove one or all PCs from being a trusted PC for your Microsoft account.

    They changed how it works for security reasons I believe.

    They basically say that you have to remove them all then add one back at a time, and there is a 2 month non use remove policy so if you don't sign into a device for 2 months then it's removed from the trusted device list.

    Just following up on my post, both nodes have shown up overnight. Unfortunately, I just tend to be a little impatient with some of these things and like to see how they work right from the get-go, so waiting around for it to occur is just a struggle for me.

    No worries Patrick. I know how you feel. I like to know how every bit of it works with all the how, what, and whens as well.

Removing a VHD
Hello, as the title states, I am wondering how I could remove, or possible delete a VHD created as a partition of my C drive. I recently partitioned it to install Windows 7 on it, though I don't need anymore, so I decided I'd remove it, my problem now is I don't know how. Thanks in advance.
