What programs for file system virtualization do you use?
Do you mean something like VirtualBox?
Virtualizes the file system by protecting the drive from track 0 so MBR/GPT/MVR/MSR are protected/virtualized as well.
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 . 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
I did not know it. Thanks for the tips
