manually removing the .vdi files left over after removing VirtualBox


Hi,
I have a question, that may sound silly. I have removed VirtualBox from my Ubuntu install. But the .VirtualBox folder is still existing with a virtual drive of nearly 10 GB. Can I manually remove the folder .VirtualBox with rm -rf without any unwanted side effects?
Thanking in advance,

If you don't need name.vdi (virtual disk ). #rm -rf will delete, no more side effect other than the recover of the file because in Linux based system recovery is not easy task.
