vmware fusion 10

Have to say how disappointing Fusion 10 is , have been using it since version 5 /6 , so a number of years .

Today trying to run Win 10 , been at it now for about 40 minutes , and all Im getting is a LOT of disk activity , slooooooooooooooow response to ANY mouse click ,......and STILL the disk drive is whirring away .

I know Win 10 isn''t the greatest , but it's not THAT bad surely ??

Rapidly losing the will to live .....

Thanks for the reply .

I did a quick search and discovered there are myriad things I can do to try to improve the performance .

Whether I have the fortitude to jump through al those  hoops is another question .

At the end of the day people like me who use VM's are really only side-stepping the issue .....we dont want to invest in another machine !

Just having a moan really 🙂

Sounds not a VMware Fusion issue...

To capture the culprit making the disk noisy?Smiley Wink MSFT system internals suite / process explorer and process monitor running on Windows, should do that, if Windows is the suspect. For the macOS host, there's Activity Monitor or maybe better tools.
