    VMware constantly writes to VMEM file

    jgv Novice

       

      Running VMWare workstation (Win7Pro64 Host, WinXpPro32 Guest), VMware constantly writes to the vmem file.  This causes losts of disk seeks back and forth and slows down the entire machine.

       

       

      My understanding is that vmem is a backup of the memory... is there any way to tell it to only make this backup periodically.  Or some other way to speed it up?
