    What programs for file system virtualization do you use?

    Do you mean something like VirtualBox?

    Also, besides VirtualBox, I used Molebox, now I use BoksedApp.
    If you are interested in security, you can try using the Sandboxie.

    Thanks for the tips. I have never tried Shadow Defender, but I heard about this program.
    I used VirtualBox before, but I constantly have problems with this program. It is simple and convenient, but I always get bugs and errors

    i know ms intended to crush german engineered vbox, and they suck!

    latest problems i had while updating to v6 was my slow learning that the unexpected crashes many times in one of the last tasks creating a msmg image. but i got it. all my vm's run faster now. last "magic solutions" was virtualizing a physical 1803, upgrade to 1809 and bring back to physical machine (solved wx issue twice doing so with the same old pc :)

    resulting success only counts! greetings! vbox has become perfect, i remember the fat bugs just 7 years ago.

    I still notice problems with Vbox.
    Slow work is sometimes unbearable. Maybe I have something wrong with my computer, I'll try to figure it out.

    use the forum of vbox! most likely you find answers there, because if it's a general problem, someone already asked there for help!

    Thanks for the advice. I was already looking for the reason of the slow work. Perhaps you are right, I will try to correct the situation.

    When running VMs from a HDD, defragmention can become an issue :thinking:. If the virtual drive is scattered in little chunks all over a bigger HDD the VM will likely lag. That issue also applies for VMware.

    EDIT: If possible a dedicated HDD for VMs with no other programs accessing it is preferred.

    That's why i always check "store virtual disk as a single file" and VMWare reports disk fragmentation :)
