if i downloaded somethng that would take up like 5GB or something if i went to delete it would all 5GB go back onto my hard drive
Yes if you Defrag you should get it all back.
would i lose some memory in the process
Memory does not get lost when deleting files
Hard drive is for storage as you are saying I believe and the memory is what allows you to open more programs at one time and run them effectively.
I hope this answers your question and just a FYI. There is never a stupid question except the one you fail to ask.

Yes, it all goes back. You don't even have to defrag. Once the disk gets the command to delete, ALL the sectors are marked free. You can easliy see this yourself by copying a file, note the space, then delete the file. You will get back every last bit - pun intended.
if i delete it would all...go back
