Where did my hard drive space go?

So I decided one day to try Parallels instead of Boot Camp and thought i'd see how well Parallels uses Directx. I install it with xfire and steam w/counter strike source and half life 2 stuff. Well, I found out fast that it SUCKS! So i go to uninstall with the Parallel uninstaller and it was real fast. Although, it seemed like my hard drive space didn't change much at all. I mean, steam games are like 6 gb themselves and it didn't even take 2 gb. I tried an uninstall off of the Parallels forums with the script and it didn't seem to work. I was using the latest version of Parallels and latest update of Tiger. Did it not delete the virtual image? Can you do that? Is there something I'm missing here? Thanks.
