Virtual Hard disk : does it mean i can create a VHD of 500gb on 320HDD and can put data more than 320gb? Is it possible? if it is then will i lose any data if my operating system goes bad?


Who told you that? No you cannot create a virtual hard drive with a storage capacity larger than that of the physical hard drive that contains it. And yes, you will lose any data stored on the hard drive if your physical drive is reformatted.
